On p 5365 structures for 1 and 2 should be interchanged. In Table VI the coefficient A for the least-squares planes 1 through 6 should be multiplied by 10. A corrected Table VII is given below. The transannular separations for the title compound are no longer significantly different from those in other free base porphyrins. Thus the discussion of these differences, both in this paper and in Caughey, W. S.; Ibers, J. A. J. Am. Chem. Soc. 1977, 99, 6639-6645, is no longer applicable.
