Crystallization and crystal structure analysis of chlorohydrates of either tri- or tetracationic copper porphyrins, namely copper(5,10,15-tris(N-methyl-pyridinium-4-yl)-20-pyridine-porphyrinato) (1) and copper(5,1 0,1 5,20-tetrakis (N-methyl-pyridinium-4-yl)-porphyrinato), respectively, have been performed. Two crystalline forms, 2 and 3, of the latter have been obtained under different preparation conditions. A novel kind of slipped stack chains of these cationic porphyrins has been detected. The pronounced saddle conformation of the porphyrin reveals T-like interactions between the peripheral pyrrole Cb-Cb "double bond" and the metal center. DFT calculations on the isolated porphyrins clearly show the HOMO orbitals with the correct topology to yield a bonding interaction among the stacked porphyrin units. To our knowledge, a slipped stack chain of positively charged porphyrins has never been previously reported, if the arrangement of faced units of monocationic metalloporphyrins or phthalocyanins is excluded.

Abstract

Crystallization and crystal structure analysis of chlorohydrates of either tri- or tetracationic copper porphyrins, namely copper(5,10,15-tris(N-methyl-pyridinium-4-yl)-20-pyridine-porphyrinato) (1) and copper(5,1 0,1 5,20-tetrakis (N-methyl-pyridinium-4-yl)-porphyrinato), respectively, have been performed. Two crystalline forms, 2 and 3, of the latter have been obtained under different preparation conditions. A novel kind of slipped stack chains of these cationic porphyrins has been detected. The pronounced saddle conformation of the porphyrin reveals T-like interactions between the peripheral pyrrole Cb-Cb "double bond" and the metal center. DFT calculations on the isolated porphyrins clearly show the HOMO orbitals with the correct topology to yield a bonding interaction among the stacked porphyrin units. To our knowledge, a slipped stack chain of positively charged porphyrins has never been previously reported, if the arrangement of faced units of monocationic metalloporphyrins or phthalocyanins is excluded.
