Abstract

FT-IR and theoretical studies of the d6 and d 7-porphyrin carbene complexes revealed that the metal-C carbene bond is a double bond in the singlet state, while the metal-Ccarbene bond is a single bond in the multiplet state. Since the radical on the Ccarbene delocalized to the α-carbonyl group, the stretching of the C=O double bond shifted downward in the multiplet states.
