A novel tribenzotetraazaporphyrin with a fused azulene ring was synthesized via mixed condensation reaction of 5,6-dicyanoazulene and 3,6- dibutoxyphthalonitrile. The macrocycle exhibited several intense absorption peaks from 600 to 900 nm. The spectroscopic properties were analyzed by DFT calculations.
