trans-Bis(ferrocenecarboxylato)(5,10,15,20-tetraphenylporphyrinato)tin(IV) complex Sn(TPP)(FcCOO)2 has been synthesized and fully characterized. The X-ray structural analysis of Sn(TPP)(FcCOO)2 reveals that the tin(IV) center is octahedrally coordinated by the porphyrin occupying the square base and axial coordination of two ferrocenecarboxylato ligands in an anti orientation with respect to each other. The Fe(II) center of the ferrocenecarboxylato ligand lies 5.7 Å from the tin(IV) center of the porphyrin ring. The cyclic voltammogram of Sn(TPP)(FcCOO)2 exhibits three distinctive redox couples consisting of one oxidative wave and two reductive waves due to the ferrocenecarboxylato ligands and the porphyrin ring, respectively.
