Abstract

Zinc, oxo-titanium, cobalt, and manganese phthalocyanine derivatives substituted with nonperipheral 3-(tetra[4-(thiophen-3-yl)-phenoxy] moieties have been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, IR, H-1 NMR spectroscopy, electronic spectroscopy, and mass spectra. The compounds have good solubility in various polar and nonpolar organic solvents and not aggregated (in the same solvents) within a wide concentration range. Electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical measurements exhibit that incorporation redox active metal centers, Co-II, (TiO)-O-IV and (MnOAc)-O-III into the phthalocyanine core extend the redox richness of the Pc ring with the reversible metal-based reduction and oxidation couples of the metal centers in addition to the common Pc ring-based electron transfer processes.
