The title compound, [Fe(C2H5O)(C36H 44N4)], contains a five-coordinate iron-porphyrin complex with an axial eth-oxy ligand. The iron(III) atom is displaced by 0.504 (2) Å towards the eth-oxy ligand from the 24-atom mean plane of the porphyrin. The average Fe - Np distance is 2.078 (2) Å and the Fe - O distance is 1.8232 (18) Å. The eth-oxy C atoms are disordered in a 0.581 (12):0.419 (12) ratio. The bond angles of the Fe - O - C linkage are 128.6 (3) and 130.4 (3)°, respectively, for the major and minor occupancy C atoms.
