The reaction of 5, 10, 15, 20-tetra-(4-pyridyl) porphyrin 1 with triruthenium dodecacarbonyl [Ru3(CO)12], zinc(II) acetate, copper(II) acetate, cobalt(II) acetate afforded complexes 2a−2d respectively. Treatment of 2a−2d with Merrifield’s peptide resin obtained 3a−3d. The compounds 3a−3d reacted with methyl iodide respectively gave 4a−4d. New complexes 4a−4d have been identified by IR, UV-visible spectra, and AES.
