Abstract

In this study, 3-(4-{3-[3-(dimethylamino)phenoxy]propoxy}phenyl)propan-1-ol, 3-(4-{3-[3-(diethylamino)phenoxy]propoxy}phenyl)propan-1-ol and axially disubstituted silicon naphthalocyanines (SiNc) bearing electropolymerizable bis-[(4-{3-[3-(dimethylamino)phenoxy]propoxy}phenyl)propanoxy] and bis-[(4-{3-[3-(diethylamino)phenoxy]propoxy}phenyl)propanoxy] units were synthesized for the first time. Aggregation behavior of SiNcs was examined in different solvents and concentrations in DMSO. In all solvents and concentrations, SiNcs were non-aggregated. Also, electrochemical studies of SiNcs were investigated by cyclic and square wave voltammetry. While SiNcs gave only naphthalocyanine-based reduction process during the cathodic potential scans, they were electropolymerized on the working electrode during the anodic potential scan because of the oxidative electropolymerization of (4-{3-[3-(dimethylamino)phenoxy]propoxy}phenyl)propanoxy and (4-{3-[3-(diethylamino)phenoxy]propoxy}phenyl)propanoxy groups on the substituents of the complexes.
