Background: Fe(III) meso-Tetraphenylporphine Chloride is a specialty chemical manufactured by Frontier Specialty Chemicals which is useful for numerous catalytic organic transformations. Fe(III) meso-Tetraphenylporphine Chloride catalyzes a highly E-selective olefination of aldehydes with ethyl diazo acetate in the presence of PPh3.1 Selective Baeyer-Villiger oxidation of cycloketones to lactones with molecular oxygen was catalyzed by Fe(III) meso-Tetraphenylporphine Chloride with benzaldehyde as an oxygen acceptor.2 Fe(III) meso-Tetraphenylporphine Chloride catalyzes the cyclopropanation of styrenes via the in-situ generation of trfluoromethyldiazomethane.3 Fe(III) meso-Tetraphenylporphine Chloride catalyzes the N-H insertion of amines with ethyl diazo acetate.4
