[reaction: see text] Oxidation of dilithium tetraphenylporphyrin, Li(2)(TPP), yields the doubly oxidized porphyrin complex [Li(TPP)][BF(4)]. Free TPP appears to be unstable. The crystal structure of [Li(TPP)][BF(4)] reveals that the 16-atom C-N inner ring of the porphyrin consists of alternating single and double bonds. NMR spectroscopy and(More)
Treatment of Si(TPP)Cl2 (TPP = tetraphenylporphyrinato) with 2 equiv of Na/Hg in THF yields the reduced porphyrin complex, Si(TPP)(THF)2, in which the porphyrin ring system has an oxidation state of 4- and the complex is antiaromatic. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction reveals that Si(TPP)(THF)2 is highly ruffled and exhibits a unique C-C bond length(More)
The reaction of GeCl2(dioxane) with K2Pc(DMF)4 yields germanium phthalocyanine, GePc. GePc dissolves in pyridine to form GePc(py)2. The 1H NMR spectrum of GePc(py)2 and nucleus-independent chemical shift (NICS) calculations on GePc(NMe3)2 both show the presence of a strong paratropic ring current. That ring current, along with the bond-length alternation in(More)
Treatment of tetraphenylporphyrinato(aluminum) chloride, Al(TPP)Cl, with Na/Hg in THF yields the stable radical Al(TPP)(THF)2. Similarly, treatment of aluminum phthalocyanine chloride, Al(Pc)Cl, with Na/Hg in THF yields the stable radical Al(Pc)(THF)2. Solution-phase magnetic susceptibility measurements show that both are monomeric radicals in solution, and(More)
The contrasting photophysical properties of two silicon (IV) tetraphenylporphyrins, Si(TPP)(py)2 and Si(TPP)Cl2, have been investigated using static absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy and ultrafast transient absorption measurements. The parent Si(TPP)Cl2, in which the porphyrin macrocycle has its normal 2- oxidation state, has a fluorescence yield of(More)
The reaction of vanadium(III) acetylacetonate with HBF4 in acetonitrile yields [(CH3CN)5V-O-V(CH3CN)5][BF4]4, a material that serves as a convenient precursor to other [V-O-V]4+ species such as [(bipy)2(CH3CN)V-O-V(CH3CN)(bipy)2][BF4]4 (bipy=2,2'-bipyridine). Single-crystal X-ray diffraction shows that the V-O-V linkage of [(CH3CN)5V-O-V(CH3CN)5]4+ is(More)
Treatment of GeCl2(dioxane) with Li2(TPP)(OEt2)2 (TPP = tetraphenylporphyrin) in THF yields Ge(TPP), the first free Ge(II) porphyrin complex. In pyridine Ge(TPP) is converted to Ge(TPP)(py)2, an antiaromatic Ge(IV) complex, whereas in benzene the reaction is reversed, and pyridine dissociates from Ge(TPP)(py)2 to form Ge(TPP). That reversible reaction(More)
