Abstract

The new 2-[2-(6-tert-butyl-2H-1,3-benzoxazin-3(4H)-yl)ethoxy]ethanol 1 and 2-[2-(6-pentyl-2H-1,3-benzoxazin-3(4H)-yl)ethoxy]ethanol 2 have been synthesized. Axially disubstituted silicon phthalocyanines 3 and 4 have been synthesized by introducing 2-[2-(6-tert-butyl-2H-1,3-benzoxazin-3(4H)-yl)ethoxy]ethanol and 2-[2-(6-pentyl-2H-1,3-benzoxazin-3(4H)-yl)ethoxy]ethanol at the axial positions of silicon(IV) phthalocyanine, respectively. The electrochemical properties of silicon phthalocyanines 3 and 4 were also investigated by cyclic voltammetry (CV) and square wave voltammetry. Voltammetric studies show that while 3 showed two reversible reduction and one irreversible oxidation couples, 4 showed two quasi-reversible reduction and one irreversible oxidation couples.
