Abstract: In the title compound, [Zn(C48H36N4O4)]·2CH2Cl2, the ZnII ion lies on an inversion center and is coordinated in an almost ideal square-planar geometry. The asymmetric unit also contains one dichloromethane solvent molecule. The unique methoxy-substituted benzene rings form dihedral angles of 59.38 (6) and 66.77 (6)° with the mean plane (r.m.s. deviation of fitted atoms = 0.0282 Å) of the atoms in the porphyrin core. The packing is characterized by close contacts between the ZnII ion and two symmetry-related molecules through the O atoms of a methoxyphenyl group [ZnO = 2.694 (2) Å], forming a two-dimensional network parallel to (100).
