In this study, new metal-free and metallo-phthalocyanine complexes (Co, TiO) were synthesized using a piperazine-substituted phthalonitrile derivative. All proposed structures were supported by instrumental methods. Electrochemical studies of H-2-Pc, (TiOPc)-O-IV, and (COPc)-Pc-II were examined using cyclic voltammetry (CV) and square-wave voltammetry (SWV) techniques. Voltammetric analyses of phthalocyanines supported the proposed structure of the synthesized complexes. All studied phthalocyanines were oxidatively electropolymerized on the working electrode during the repetitive anodic potential scans. (C) 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
