A μ-oxo-linked subphthalocyanine (SubPc)-tetrabenzotriazacorrole (TBC)-SubPc triad has been synthesized. The desired triad could be formed using axial ligand coupling between a TBC phosphorus(V) complex and SubPc, and was characterized by MS, 1H and 31P NMR spectra. The triad can absorb light across the entire UV-vis region. Spectroscopic and theoretical analyses support the proposal that the TBC chromophore interacts with the SubPc chromophore.
