N-(4-(3,4-dicyanophenoxy)phenyl)acetamide was obtained through the displacement reaction of 4-nitrophthalonitrile with 4-acetamidophenol. The zinc(II) Phthalocyanine(4) was prepared by the reaction of the N-(4-(3,4-dicyanophenoxy)phenyl)acetamide with ZnCl2 in dimethyl formamide (DMF). Magnesium (II) and nickel (II) phthalocyanines (5, 6) were prepared by the reaction of the N-(4-(3,4-dicyanophenoxy)phenyl)acetamide with MgCl2, NiCl2 salts without solvents at 300 degrees C. This newness on the periphery increased solubility compared to the unsubstituted phthalocyanines. These metallophthalocyanines are soluble in DMF, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), tetrahydrofuran (THF), DMF/water (1/1). The structures of target compounds were confirmed by elemental analyses, IR, H-1 NMR, UV-vis spectra. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
