Synthesis, Characterization and Electrochemical Investigation of Phthalocyanine Compounds Bearing Fluorine Functionality
We present here the syntheses of tetra-substituted fluorine containing biphenyl-malonic ester groups bearing phthalocyanine derivatives with different central metal atoms and investigation of their electrochemical behaviors. All synthesized novel phthalocyanine compounds have been characterized by using their elemental analyses, FT-IR, UV-Vis, 1H NMR, 13C NMR and mass spectroscopic methods. The electrochemical activity of phthalocyanine derivatives were also evaluated from the current–voltage curves obtained by cyclic and differential pulse voltammetric methods.
