Manganese porphyrin containing metal organic frameworks (MOFs) have the capacity to catalyze oxidation reactions due to their reactive Mn metal centers. Here we report the synthesis of three Mn-Porphyrin containing MOFs, (Mn₂Cl₂)(Mn·5DEF)(TCPP)·H₂O (1), (Et₂NH₂)₂[Cd₂(μ-Cl)₂][MnTCPP]·2DEF (2), and (Me₂NH₂)₂Cd[(MnCl)TCPP)]·2DMF·H₂O (3). The compounds were characterized by single crystal X-ray crystallography, X-ray powder diffraction and UV-Vis spectroscopy. Compounds 1 and 2 are 2-dimensional MOFs while compound 3 has a 3-dimensional structure. The ability of these compounds to catalyze oxidation reactions were investigated using the substrates cyclohexane, styrene and cyclohexene
