We report the synthesis and photophysical properties of 4,5-bis(2-((Z)-(3-hydroxynaphthalen-2-yl) methyleneamino)phenylthio)phthalonitrile ligand (SB) and its star-type functional zincphthalocyanine (SB-ZnPc) compound obtained by the condensation of 2,3,9,10,16,17,23,24-octakis-(2-aminophenylthio) zincphthlocyanines (A-ZnPc) and 1-hydroxy-2-naphthaldehyde (HNA). Each compound was purified and characterized by elemental analysis, FTIR, H-1 NMR, C-13 NMR, UV/vis and MS (Maldi-TOF) spectral data. SB-ZnPc bearing fluorescent SB moieties on the periphery shows selective palladium ion sensing behavior by acting as hard core upon interaction. Electronic spectra of the SB-ZnPc displays pronounced changes in both absorption and fluorescence spectra upon interaction with Pd2+ ion. The fluorescence of the SB-ZnPc compound is effectively quenched by treatment with Pd2+ in THE solution. The solvent effect on the photophysical properties of the SB-ZnPc and interference effect of foreign metal ions were also investigated. (C) 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
