Copper(II) complexes of a novel pyrazole containing porphyrinogen and cobalt(III) and zinc(II) complexes of a pyrazole containing tripodal ligand having N-donor atoms have been investigated. 5-Methyl-3-formylpyrazole (MPA) on reaction with copper(II) nitrate or perchlorate in the presence of tris(2-aminoethyl)amine (tren) forms novel pyrazole-based porphyrinogen complexes [Cu(T3-porphyrinogen)(H2O)](NO3)2 (1a) and [Cu(T3-porphyrinogen)(H2O)]- (ClO4)2 (1b) where T3-porphyrinogen is 1,6,11,16-tetraaza-5,10,15,20-tetrahydroxy-2,7,12, 17-tetramethylporphyrinogen. The same products are also obtained when tren is replaced by triethylamine. By contrast, the reaction between MPA, tren, and cobalt(II) perchlorate produces the cobalt(III) complex [Co(HMPz3tren)]ClO4 (2) derived from the tripodal Schiff base tris[4-(3-(5-methyl-pyrazolyl)-3-aza-3-butenyl]amine (H3MPz3tren). The X-ray crystal structures of the copper(II) complexes (1a and 1b) and the cobalt(III) complex (2) have been determined. The structures show distorted square pyramidal coordination environments for 1a and 1b with the water molecule occupying the apical site, while for complex 2 a distorted octahedral geometry is obtained. Data for 1a follow: a = 19.476(3) Å, b = 9.4116(8) Å, c = 14.204(3) Å; α = 90° = γ, β = 107.58(2)°; V = 2482.0(7) Å3, Z = 4. Data for 1b follow: a = 20.967(3) Å, b = 9.1563(18) Å, c = 14.858(4) Å; α = 90° = γ, β = 108.44(3)°; V = 2706.0(10) Å3, Z = 4. Data for 2 follow: a = 21.293(3) Å, b = 12.724(2) Å, c = 19.777(4) Å; α = 90° = γ, β = 93.03(2)°; V = 5350.6(15) Å3, Z = 8. All three complexes crystallize in the monoclinic crystal system with the C2/c space group. The complexes are further characterized by UV-vis, IR, EPR, and electrochemical studies.
