Re: Hemoglobin

The porphyrin ligand bonds to Fe which forms the heme complex. When the heme complex binds to a protein, it forms myoglobin where Fe can bind to one oxygen (O2) molecule. To make hemoglobin, four myoglobins can bind together.

While the Lewis dot structure may look like its dipoles cancel out when you draw the two bromine atoms and two chlorine atoms diagonally, the shape tetrahedral is polar since it is asymmetrical. https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fchem.libretexts.org%2F%40api%2Fdeki%2Ffiles%2F1314%2F2...

This is where people get tripped up on from Lewis structures and determining if a molecule is polar or non-polar. Even though the drawing may look as if the dipoles are cancelling, you must refer to the VSEPR model in order to see the actual angles and where the bonds are.
