Quintuple-decker sandwich: Homoleptic pentakis(2,3,9,10,16,17,23,24- octa(butyloxy)phthalocyaninato) lanthanide-cadmium quintuple-decker complexes were isolated and structurally characterized. They represent the first example of sandwich-type stacked tetrapyrrole-metal complexes with five decks (see figure; the tetrapyrrole molecules are represented by the blue/pink discs, TCB=1,2,4-trichlorobenzene).
