Iron(II) tetra(2,3-quinoxalino)porphyrazine, FeIIT(2,3-Q)Pz, was obtained using diaminomaleonitrile and o-phenylenediamine as starting materials. Reduction of FeIIT(2,3-Q)Pz by sodium fluorenone ketyl in the presence of cryptand[2.2.2] and N-methylimidazole followed by precipitation of crystals lead to crystalline salt {cryptand[2.2.2](Na+)}2×[(N-MeIm)2FeI{T(2,3-Q)Pz}·3-]·2-×3C6H4Cl2×2H2O (1). Molecular structure and properties of the [(N-MeIm)2FeI{T(2,3-Q)Pz}·3-]·2- radical dianions have been studied. Reduction of FeIIT(2,3-Q)Pz is accompanied by strong blue shift of Soret band in spectrum of 1 but Q-band has close position to that in the spectrum of neutral macrocycle. There is an alternation of the C-Nmeso bonds in the macrocycle in 1, the difference between short and long C-Nmeso bonds of 0.017  Ȧ supports the formation of radical trianionic T(2,3-Q)Pz·3- macrocycle. Coordination of N-methylimidazole molecules to iron (I) atoms with the Fe–N(imidazole) distance of 1.999(7) Ȧ is observed. Both FeI atom and radical trianionic {T(2,3-Q)Pz}3·-macrocyclecontribute to the EPR signal of 1, which is well interpreted as the superposition of Lorentzian shaped lines with g1 = 2.0917, g2= 2.0679, g3 = 2.0292, g4 = 1.9991 and g5 = 1.9922. The lines with higher g-factor (g1 and g2) value can be attributed to low spin (S = 1/2) FeI whereas the lines with lower g-factor (g4 and g5) values can be attributed to the radical trianionic {T(2,3-Q)Pz}·3- macrocycle. The line with intermediate g-factor value (g3) can originate from the contribution of both components. The value of effective magnetic moment at 300 K (2.32 mB) indicates to the contribution of two non-interacting S = 1/2 spins from iron(I) atoms and radical trianionic {T(2,3-Q)Pz}·3- macrocycle. These spins weakly antiferromagnetically interact with Weiss temperature of -3 K.
