The corrphycene molecule of the title compound, [Cu(C 36H 36- N 4O 4)] 36H 38N 4O 4, has an essentially planar macrocyclic framwork with a slightly distorted trapezoidal N 4 core; the r.m.s. deviation of the peripheral 20 C atoms and four N atoms is 0.054(3) Å. The surface area within the N 4 - coordinating core (8.358 Å 2) is significantly smaller than that (8.503 Å 2) of the corresponding free-base porphyrin. Two intramolecular N-H··· N hydrogen bonds are observed. Detailed structure analysis clarified that the co-crystallization of the free-base corrphycene together with a quite minor component (ca 3%) of corrphycenato-Cu II occurred in the recrystallization process.
