The MnIVO unit in the five‐coordinate oxo(porphyrinato)manganese(IV) complex 2, which is formed by oxidation of the bromo(porphyrinato)manganese(III) complex 1 with potassium peroxycarbonate, was characterized by X‐ray absorption spectroscopy. The relatively long MnO bond (1.69±0.03 Å) is probably attributable to the high‐spin state and the low polarizability of the half‐filled t 2g3 subshell of high‐spin MnIV. (Figure Presented.)
