Phthalocyanines with four naphthoxy pendant groups on the periphery were prepared by cyclotetramerization of 4-(1-naphthoxy)phthalonitrile and 4-(2-naphthoxy)phthalonitrile. The new compounds were characterized by elemental analyses, H-1 NMR, IR and UV-Vis spectral data. The electronic spectra exhibit an intense pi-->pi(*) transition of naphthyl identity together with characteristic Q and B bands of the phthalocyanine core. (C) 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
