The crystal structure of the title compound, [Fe(C44H20F8N4)- (CH3O)], has been determined. The Fe atom lies 0.485 (1) ,Å out of the plane of the four N atoms to which it is coordinated and from the inversion centre at the origin of the unit cell. The methoxy group is axially coordinated to the Fe atom with O-Fe-N angles of 106.3 (2) and 102.4 (2)°, a C-O-Fe angle of 128.3 (5)° and an Fe-O distance of 1.788 (5) Å. Difluorophenyl rings are tilted from the porphyrin (por) plane with torsion angles of -68.1 (6) and 77.7 (5)° across the two Cpor-C-C-Car systems.
