A tetranitrile monomer N,N-bis{2-[2-(3,4-dicyanophenoxy)ethoxy]ethyl}-4-methylbenzenesulfonamide (3) was synthesized by nucleophilic aromatic substitution of N,N-bis[2-(2-hydroxyethoxy)ethyl]-4-methylbenzenesulfonamide (1) onto 4-nitrophthalonitrile (2). The metal-free phthalocyanine polymer (4) was prepared by the reaction of a tetranitrile monomer 3 in 2-(dimethylamino)ethanol. Ni(II), Co(II) and Cu(II) phthalocyanine polymers were prepared by the reaction of the tetranitrile compound with the chlorides of Ni(11), Co(II) and Cu(II) in 2-(dimethylamino)ethanol (DMAE). The Zn(II)-phthalocyanine polymer was prepared by the reaction of the tetranitrile compound with the acetate of Zn(II) in DMAE. The new compounds were characterized by a combination of IR, (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR, UV-Vis, elemental analysis and MS spectral data. (C) 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
