A new water-soluble copper phthalocyanine, 2,9,16,23-tetrakis(4-(1-naphthoxy-4-sulfonic acid sodium salt)) phthalocyaninato copper NhtCuPc, where Nht indicates naphthoxy-4-sulfonic acid sodium salt, was synthesized and its electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical behavior were investigated in DMSO solution. The in situ spectroelectrochemical studies showed that the neutral complex exhibited the characteristic spectral changes corresponding to mono-anionic [NhtCuPc(3-)](-) and di-anionic [NhtCuPc(4-)](2-) species having longterm stability during reduction processes.
