Aluminum(III) porphyrin carboxylate complexes have shown an affinity for a sixth nitrogenous ligand. The use of isonicotinic or nicotinic acid, which offers both a carboxylate and a nitrogen donor in the same molecule, resulted in the formation of one-dimensional (1-D) coordination polymers. The complexes and their linear oligomers have been characterized by 1H NMR spectroscopy and nanoelectrospray ionization spectrometiy. X-ray analyses confirmed the formation of the 1-D polymers in the solid state.
