Summary

The synthesis and characterization are reported for (μ-nitrido)bis[(octaphenyltetraazaporphyrinato)iron] ([OPTAP)Fe]2N). The [(OPTAP)Fe]2N dimer is paramagnetic with one unpaired electron per dimer unit and shows a typical axially symmetric e.p.r. spectrum in non-polar solvents at liquid N2 temperature (g=2.126, g=2.001), with well-resolved superhyper-fine splitting resulting from the μ-nitrido bridge (AN=2.48mT, AN=2.60mT).

A pyridine monoadduct of [(OPTAP)Fe]2N, formed in frozen glasses has been characterised by changes in e.p.r. spectra. Electronic spectra show no pyridine adduct formation at 298 K. Mössbauer parameters (IS=−0.042 mm/s, QS=1.769mm/s at 298K) are indicative of the predominant iron(IV) character in [(OPTAP)Fe]2N.

The pyridine monoadduct binds O2 reversibly. The O2 adduct was characterized by e.p.r. spectroscopy (g1=2.062, g2=2.007, g3=2.000). O2 titration as monitored by e.p.r. shows that the adduct stoichiometry is one O2 per dimer. A spin-pairing model for O2 binding accounts for the observed O2-[(OPTAP)Fe]2N interaction.
