Metalation of meso-hexakis(pentafluorophenyl)-substituted [26]-hexaphyrin( (1) has been explored with group 12 metal ions Zn(II), Cd(II), and Hg(II). Zn(II) and Cd(II) ions afforded dinuclear gable-shaped complexes 2 and 3 in good yields, while Hg(II) ion provided bis-Hg(II) and mono-Hg(II) planar complexes (4 and 5) via C-H bond cleavage.
