(2,3,5,10,12,13,15,20-Octaphenylporphinato)copper(II) 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane solvate

By Babu Varghese, Karuppaiah Karunanithi and Puttaiah Bhyrappa


The title complex, [Cu(C68H44N4)]·C2H2Cl4, exhibits nearly square-planar geometry around the CuII centre and the macrocyclic ring is almost planar. The porphyrin molecule has an approximate non-crystallographic inversion centre (Ci), and a non-crystallographic twofold rotation axis (C2) within the CuII–porphyrin ring plane. Further, it has non-crystallographic twofold rotation axis and mirror plane (Cs) symmetry perpendicular to the molecular plane. The molecular packing of the complexes and the solvent molecules shows weak intermolecular C—H...π, C—H...Cl and C—H...N interactions, forming a clathrate-like structure
