2-Mono(1-{N-[3-(2-methylimidazol-1-yl)propyl]carbamoyl}-2-(N- hexadecylcarbamoyl)ethyl-trans-acrylamido)-5,10,15,20-tetra-(α,α, α,α-o-pivalamidophenyl)porphinatoiron(II) (1a) was synthesized and solubilized in a physiological solution with phospholipid; the oxygen-binding rate constant and affinity were similar to those of erythrocytes in suspension.
