Bis-thallium(I) porphyrin complexes
Treatment of octaethylporphyrin (1) or tetraphenylporphyrin (2) with more than two equiv of thallium(I) ethoxide gives the corresponding stable bis[thallium(I)] porphyrin complexes (5) and (6), respectively; these thallium(I) porphyrins are shown to have very different chemical and spectroscopic properties than do the corresponding thallium(III) porphyrin complexes. © 1980.
