In the present study novel tetra 4-(4-fluorophenyI)-5-(4-methoxypheny1)-4H-1,2,4-triazole-3-thio substituted non-peripherally metal free (4), zinc(II) (5), lead (II) (6) and copper(II) (7) phthalocyanines were synthesized. The obtained novel compounds were characterized by a combination of FT-IR, H-1 NMR, UV Vis and MALDI-TOF techniques. The redox properties of the complexes have been investigated via cyclic voltammetry, square wave voltammetry and in situ spectroelectrochemistry. The compounds displayed ring-based, reversible and/or quasi-reversible reduction and oxidation processes and aggregation of the complexes influenced the redox character of the processes. The color changes during the redox processes of metallo phthalocyanine were recorded by in-situ spectroelectrochemical measurements. In situ UV-vis spectroelectrochemical measurements, which was associated with color change of the complexes, showed their applicability in the fields of the electrochemical technologies.
