Synthesis, characterization and spectroscopic properties of novel mono-lutetium(III) phthalocyanines

Mehmet Pişkin, Zafer ODABAŞ


In this study,  the novel, highly soluble and non-aggregated peripherally /non-peripherally tetrakis-2,6-dimethoxyphenoxy substituted lutetium(III) acetate mono-phthalocyanine complexes have been synthesized for use in different technological applications in this study. The new phthalocyanine complexes have been characterized by elemental analysis, IR, 1H NMR, UV–vis spectroscopy and MALDI-TOF Mass spectra. The effects of the positions (peripheral or non-peripheral) of the substituents on the spectroscopic properties of 2,6-dimethoxyphenoxy substituted mono-lutetium(III) phthalocyanines have been also reported.


Mono-phthalocyanine, lutetium(III) acetate, soluble, non-aggregated, peripheral, non-peripheral.
