The synthesis of new two phthalonitrile derivatives is described. Using these starting materials, metallophthalocyanines Substituted with four 1H-benzoimidazol-2-ylsulfanyl and 2-(1H-benzo[d]imidazol-2-ylthioetoxy) have been synthesized, respectively. The newly synthesized compounds have been characterized by elemental analyses, UV-visible. IR and H-1 NMR spectra. Copyright (c) 2006 Society of Porphyrins & Phthalocyanines.
