Mild Synthesis of Metallophthalocyanines
Dominic L. Ventura, Carly M. Mazuca, Rachel S. Ventura

Phthalocyanines have been synthesized via several procedures, although most methods utilize vigorous reaction conditions. A mild synthesis of metallophthalocyanines has been conducted from 1,2-dicyanobenzenes upon treatment with a metal salt and triethylamine in methanol at reflux (65 ?C). This method has been used to prepare a wide assortment of metallophthalocyanines as well as several substituted copper-phthalocyanines.
