A one-pot solvothermal reaction of iron(ii) with meso-tetra(4-pyridyl)porphyrin (TPyP) leads to two novel layered structures with an unprecedented two-dimensional paddle-wheel-like pattern; the two structures have the same composition Fe(TPyP) but a different packing sequence, namely ⋯ABAB⋯ and ⋯ABCDABCD⋯.
