Water-soluble manganese(III) corroles and corresponding (nitrido)manganese(V) complexes

Irena Saltsman, Israel Goldberg, Zeev Gross

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Corroles that carry either two or three ortho-pyridyl groups at the meso-carbon atoms form stable manganese(III) complexes, from which corresponding water-soluble derivatives are obtained via N-alkylation. These syntheses and the spectroscopic features are disclosed, together with the molecular structure of the manganese(III) corrole that carries three ortho-pyridylium groups. All the manganese(III) corroles may be transformed to stable (nitrido)manganese(V) complexes, whose NMR spectra provide invaluable structural information regarding the identity and number of atropoisomers.
