Abstract

original image

Mix and match: The title porphyrinoid has been synthesized and shows unique coordination chemistry by incorporating two different metals with different oxidation states (see figure). X-ray crystallography was used to confirm that a rectangular conformation in both mono- and binuclear complexes was retained.
