A Tin(IV) Porphyrin with Two Axial Organometallic NCN-Pincer Platinum Units

A tin(IV) porphyrin was combined with two axial NCN-pincer platinum(II) fragments by utilizing the oxophilicity of the apical positions on the tin atom and the acidic nature of the NCN-pincer platinum derived benzoic acid. The solid-state structure determined by X-ray crystallography revealed some close contacts between the pincer complexes and the meso-p-tolyl subsitutents of the porphyrin. It was shown by 1H NMR spectroscopy that these close contacts were not present in solution and that this compound can potentially act as a novel building block for supramolecular architectures
