A series of isocyanide complexes, [Fe(Porphyrinoid)( tBuNC) 2] +, were synthesized and examined for their physicochemical properties. The molecular structure of the bis( tBuNC) adduct of the iron(iii) porphycene (1) and corrphycene (2) adopting the (d xy) 2(d xz, d yz) 3 ground state were determined for the first time. Furthermore, 1 and 2 showed unusual crossover phenomena between different electron configurations, (d xy) 2(d xz, d yz) 3 ground state and (d xz, d yz) 4(d xy) 1 ground state, by the addition of the external stimuli.
