The novel metal-free phthalocyanines 8 and 9 bearing four peripheral tetraaza-dithiahexaoxa cylindrical or spherical macrotricycles have been synthesized by tricyclo-tetramerization of isoindolinediimine derivatives of supercryptands 6 and 7 and were characterized by elemental analysis, H-1 and C-13 NMR, IR, MS and UV-vis spectral data.
