The treatment of boron(III) subphthalocyanine chloride with 1,3-bis[3-(diethylamino) phenoxy] propan-2-ol 2 and 2,3-bis[3-(diethylamino) phenoxy] propan-1-ol 4 in toluene gave the corresponding axially substituted boron(III) subphthalocyanine compounds 3 and 5. The novel axially diethylaminophenoxypropanoxy substituted subphthalocyanines were characterized by standard spectroscopy methods. The electropolymerization properties of new axially diethylaminophenoxypropanoxy substituted subphthalocyanines were also characterized by using cyclic and square wave voltammetry techniques. This study is the first example of electropolymerization of axially substituted subphthalocyanines in the literature.
