Meso-phenyl tripyrrinone (2), which is derived directly from N-confused porphyrin by Cu(II)-assisted oxygenolysis, can serve as a metal coordination ligand using three nitrogens and one oxygen in the core. The crystal structures of Pd(II) and Cu(II) complexes show the similar square-planar N30-coordination but the mode of oligomeric chains formed in the crystals by π-π stacking interaction is different: zig-zag for Cu(II) and straight for Pd(II) complex.
