This paper describes a new symmetric metal-free phthalocyanine and its transition metal complexes which were prepared by a condensation of 1,2-dihydroacenaphthylen-1-ol 1 and 4-nitro phthalonitrile 2 with Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), and Zn(II) salts in 2-(dimethylamino)ethanol, respectively. The novel phthalocyanines bearing oxygen donor atoms on peripheral position have been characterized by IR, UV-Vis, H-1 NMR, C-13 NMR, Mass spectra and elemental analysis. The thermal behaviours of 4-8 were investigated by TG/DTA. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
