An electrochemical study of hydroxide- and methoxide-ligated iron(III) tetraphenylporphyrins possessing ortho-phenyl substituents that block μ -oxo dimer formation has been carried out. Ligation by these strongly basic oxyanions promotes the formation of iron(IV)-oxo porphyrins upon one-electron oxidation. Further one-electron oxidation of the latter provides the iron(IV)-oxo porphyrin π -cation radical. These results are discussed in terms of chemical model studies and the enzymatic intermediate compounds I and II of the peroxidases.
