Although iodo(etiohemiporphycenato)iron(III) showed an admixed intermediate-spin state (S = 3/2, 5/2) with a major contribution of S = 3/2 in solution, the same complex exhibited the high-spin state (S = 5/2) in the solid phase. Importance of the crystal packing has been pointed out for the formation of the high-spin complex in the solid.
