Background: Fe(III) meso-Tetra (2,4,6 trimethylphenyl) Porphine Chloride is a synthetic porphyrin specialty chemical manufactured by Frontier Specialty Chemicals. High valent iron porphyrin intermediates generated from Fe(III) meso-Tetra (2,4,6 trimethylphenyl) Porphine Chloride are powerful epoxidation catalysts and mimics of cytochrome P450.1-4 Fe(III) meso-Tetra (2,4,6 trimethylphenyl) Porphine Chloride is a catalyst for the stereoselective cyclopropanation of alkenes.3 Several recent mechanistic and fundamental studies have recently been published on this compound.5-6
