Molecules of the title compound, C52H38N4O8, are located on an inversion center so that the asymmetric cell contains one half of the molecule. The macrocycle exhibits a ruffled conformation with a maximum deviation of 0.16 Å for the 24 macrocycle atoms: the dihedral angle between adjacent five-membered rings is 5.13 (19)°. The benzene rings are rotated by 70.25 (19)° with respect to their adjacent protonated five-membered rings, and by 65.56 (19)° with respect to the unprotonated rings. The porphyrin conformation is supported by bifurcated N-H...(N,N) hydrogen bonds. The structure contained poorly resolved solvent molecules in voids of volume 217 Å3 per unit cell. The latter were treated using the SQUEEZE routine in PLATON [Spek (2009[Spek, A. L. (2009). Acta Cryst. D65, 148-155.]). Acta Cryst. D65, 148-155]. As the solvent could not be identified exactly, it was not included in the calculation of the overall formula weight, density and absorption coefficient.
