The novel metal-free (4) zinc(II) (5) and lead(II) (6) phthalocyanines containing 1,2,4-triazole groups connected to the phthalocyanine ring by S-bridge were synthesized and characterized. For this purpose, the original 2-(4-chlorobenzoy1)-N-(4-fluomphenyehydrazinecarbothioamide (1) was synthesized as a result of the reaction of 4chlorobenzyl hydrazide and 4-fluomphenyl isothiocyanate. It was obtained 5-(4-chlomphenyl)-4-(4 fluo ropheny1)-4H-1,2,4-triazole-3-thiol (2), which is a new compound by the ring closure reaction of 1. The other original compound 4-[5-(4 chlorophenyl)-4-(4 fluoropheny1)-4H-[1,2,4]triazol-3-yl sulfanyl]-phthalonitrile (3) was synthesized by the nucleophilic aromatic substitution reaction of 4-nitrophthalonitrile and compound 2. Starting from the new phthalonitrile (3), the metal-free (4), zinc(II) (5) and lead(II) (6) phthalocyanines (Pcs) were prepared. Six new compounds were synthesized, and their structures were characterized by elemental analysis and H-1 NMR, C-13 NMR, FT-IR, MALDI-TOF MS and UV-vis spectral data in this work. The photophysical and photochemical properties of the synthesized phthalocyanines were investigated for determination of their usability as photosensitizers (PS) for photodynamic therapy (PDT) applications.
