Photocatalytic activity of tetra- and tri-sulphophthalocyaninatozinc(II) was studied in aqueous solution of triethanolamine, complexes and electron acceptors such as methylviologen and N,N′-bis(3-sulphonatopropyl)-4-4′-bipyridinium. Adduct formation of the complexes with the electron acceptors affected their activity, but dimerization scarcely affected the activity. The activity was also investigated by measurements of redox potentials of the species used for the photoreduction of the electron acceptors.
