The planar form and two types of distorted molecular conformations in the ground electronic state for a number of metalloporphyrins in solid matrices exist simultaneously. A comparison of experimental data and results from quantum chemical calculations is discussed in order to analyze the structure of distorted porphyrin macrocycles at cryogenic temperatures.
