Hydrogenated tetrapropylporphycenes, 2,3-dihydro-2,7,12,17-tetrapropylporphycene 1 and its NiII complex 2, have been prepared and the hydrogenation effects on their electronic structure characterized. A one-electron reduction of 2 promotes dehalogenation of organic halides whose observation is unprecedented for the porphycene compounds.
