A novel 5,10,15,20-tetra[4-(3,5-dioctoxybenzamide)phenyl]porphyrin and its transition metal complexes are reported in this paper. Their molecular structures were characterized by elemental analysis, IR spectra, 1HNMR spectra and UV-Vis spectra. Their spectroscopic properties were studied by Raman spectra, fluorescence spectra and X-ray photoelectron spectra (XPS). The fluorescence quantum yields have been measured at room temperature. The fluorescence intensity of porphyrin ligand was stronger than that of the complexes. In Raman spectra, there was much difference between porphyrin ligand and its metal complexes due to changes of the symmetry of porphyrin plane. In the XPS spectra, the replacement of the free-base protons by a metal ion to form the metalloporphyrin increases the symmetry of the molecule also introduces an electron with-drawing group into the center of the porphyrin ligand which increases the N1s binding energy.
