Abstract

Room-temperature synthesis of phthalocyanines (pcs) by condensation of phthalonitriles in the presence of solid sodium methoxide in THF is proposed for the synthesis of metal-free pcs with temperature- and/or base-sensitive substituents. The addition of metal salts after metal-free pc formation in the same vessel produces metallopcs in moderate to high (ca. 30-90%) yields.
