The novel tetrasubstituted metal-free phthalocyanine (6) and metallophthalocyanines (7, 8) bearing four 14-membered tetraaza macrocycles moieties on peripheral positions have been synthesized by cyclotetramerization reaction of phthalonitrile derivative (5) in a multi-step reaction sequence. The new compounds were characterized by a combination of IR, H-1 NMR, C-13 NMR, UV-vis, elemental analysis and MS spectral data. (c) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
