Porphyrin

Postby Malia Shitabata 1F » Fri Dec 06, 2019 3:11 pm

Porphyrin is characterized by a tentradentate square planar formation of 4 nitrogen atoms. Does the central atom have to be a transition metal or can it be any other element?

In order for it to form a coordinate compound, it has to be bonded to a transition metal.
