The (oxo)[(2,3,7,8,12,13,17,18-octachloro-5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-tolylporphyrinato)]vanadium(IV): Synthesis, UV–visible, Cyclic voltammetry and X-ray crystal structure

Abstract : The present work is concerned with the oxo vanadium(IV) complex of 2,3,7,8,12,13,17,18-octachloro-5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-tolylporphyrin) with formula [V(Cl8TTP)O] (I), which was prepared by reacting the (oxo)[5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-tolylporphyrinato)]vanadium(IV) complex ([V(TTP)O]), under aerobic atmosphere, with a large excess of thionyl chloride (SOCl2). The title compound was characterized by UV–visible spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry and X-ray crystal structure. The electron-withdrawing chlorine substituents at the pyrrole carbons in the vanadyl-Cl8TTP derivative produce remarkable redshifts of the Soret and Q absorption bands and an important anodic shift of the porphyrin ring oxidation and reduction potentials. This is an indication that the porphyrin core of complex (I) is severely nonplanar in solution. The molecular structure of our vanadyl derivative shows a very high saddle distortion and an important ruffled deformation of the porphyrin macrocycle. The crystal structure of (I) is made by one-dimensional chains parallel to the c axis where channels are located between these chains. © 2017 Elsevier B.V.
