A review, with 85 references, of the chemistry of the naturally occurring Fe porphyrins and model Fe, Co, and Ru porphyrins is reviewed emphasizing their organometallic chemistry. Carbene iron porphyrins, (N,Fe)-bridged methyleneiron porphyrins, N-alkyliron porphyrins, and σ-alkyliron porphyrins have all been shown to occur in nature and to be interconvertible via redox reactions.
