This work reports the synthesis and full characterization of 5,10,15-tris-pentafluorophenylcorrolato-iridium(III) bis-trimethylamine 1 and its octabromo derivative 2. The corrole is planar in both cases (the mean deviation from the plane is as low as 0.0371 Å for 1 and 0.0325 Å for 2), the UV−vis spectra display a split Soret band with a shoulder attributable to an MLCT transition, and cyclic voltammetry reveals that the iridium(II) oxidation state cannot be accessed, while the oxidation to formal iridium(IV) complexes is achieved at much lower potentials than in other coordination environments.
