A highly solvated zinc(II) tetrakis(pentafluorophenyl)-β-octabromoporphyrin


The title compound, {4,5,9,10,14,15,19,20-octabromo-2,7,12,17-tetrakis(pentafluorophenyl)-21,22,23,- 24-tetraazapentacyclo[^(3,6).1^(8,11).1^(13,16)]tetracosa-1,3(21),4,6,8(22),9,11,13(23),14,16,18(24),19-dodecaene }zinc(II) (carbon tetrachloride, o-dichlorobenzene, acetone, methanol, water solvate) has a large tetrahedral distortion, with the Br atoms as much as 1.83 Å from the plane of the N atoms. The distortion affects primarily bond angles and bond torsion angles; bond distances in the molecule are normal. Several different solvents are incorporated into the crystal, providing a close (2.16 Å) O atom as an axial neighbor to Zn and a more distant (3.16 Å) Cl atom, in the opposite axial site.
