Porphine-porphinatoiron (II)  was synthesized from 3, 8,13,18-tetramethyl-2,12-diethyl-porphine-7,17-diacetic acid. The complex with imidazole was in a 5-coordinate and high-spin form due to steric effect of the capped porphine. The oxygen adduct of  was formed below 0°C, and the life time of the oxygen adduct was longer than that of the corresponding porphinatoiron(II) under the same conditions.
