Abstract

Chameleon states: The ruthenium and iron metalloporphyrin analogues of compound I of cytochrome P450 (1; L = thiolate) possess low-lying states that change their electronic structure with solvent polarization. The ground state of the ruthenium complex is a low-spin electrophilic state, whereas the ground state of the iron complex is triradicaloid.
