FERROVERDIN, a green iron-containing pigment, was isolated in 1955 by Chain, Tonolo and Carilli1 from an unidentified species of Streptomyces. It was at first assigned the formula C30H24O8N2Fe and the iron was shown by measurements of magnetic susceptibility to be in the ferrous state2. Later the ligand present was proved to be the p-vinyl phenyl ester of 3-nitroso-4-hydroxy-benzoic acid3,4. X-ray crystallographic measurements were undertaken to find the atomic arrangement in this unusual complex; they show, in two different crystal structures, that each iron atom is attached to three nitrosophenyl ligands and that the charge is balanced by sodium ions.
