At the core: A novel core-modified subphthalocyanine analogue has been synthesized (see structure; Cl green, red O, blue N). This molecule comprises a six-membered ring unit in place of a five-membered ring unit and exhibits unique spectroscopic (see plot) and electrochemical properties originating from the azaphenalene-containing 14π-electron conjugation system.
