The title compound, [Fe(C6HF4O)(C48H36N4O4)]·C6H12, represents a five-coordinate iron(III) porphyrin complex in a square-pyramidal geometry with a tetrafluorophenolate anion as the axial ligand. The FeIII atom is displaced by 0.364 (2) Å from the 24-atom mean plane of the porphyrinate ring towards the tetrafluoro phenolate anion. The average Fe - N distance is 2.053 (2) Å and the Fe - O distance is 1.883 (2) Å. A porphyrin aryl H atom points in the general direction of the phenoxide ring. The mean plane separation between the 24-atom porphyrin planes of two adjacent porphyrin rings is ∼3.7 Å, and the lateral shift is ∼3.5 Å resu, ting in an Fe⋯Fe separation of 5.6167 (14) Å.
