In the title compound, (5, 10, 15, 20-tetraethylporphyrinato-κ4N)bis(tetrahydrofuran-O)iron(III) perchlorate, [Fe(C28H28N4)(C4H8O) 2]ClO4, the FeIII atom has a slightly distorted octahedral coordination. The porphyrin ring of the complex cation, which has twofold symmetry, has an S4-ruffled structure and the maximum deviation of the meso-carbon from the least-squares plane of the FeC20N4 core is 0.274 (3) Å. The average Fe-N bond distance is 2.006 (3) Å.
