A series of mono- or biscrown and azacrown ether porphyrin derivatives IIIb - IIIi, IVb and IVc were synthesized as model systems for cytochrome c oxidase. The arrangement of the porphyrin and the crown ether subunits and their spatial relation has been investigated by 1H NMR spectroscopy. The complexation properties of the synthesized ligands have also been studied.
