Phthalocyanine or phthalimide?

Reply Fri 25 May, 2018 11:42 am
Hey there,

Please may I have some advice on this chemical reaction? For an assignment, I am working on synthesising phthalocyanine. The easiest possible reaction I can think of is heating phthalic anhydride with urea, possibly prilled. However, when I look this up, I am presented only with phthalimide as a product for the reaction.

Does the same reaction yield different products under different conditions? Or is it a different reaction entirely?

If you can make phthalocyanine using this reaction, can I have some kind of detail on the apparatus, setup, and reaction conditions required?

And if you can't, does anyone have any alternative, simple reactions?

Thanks in advance for all help!

can you sublime a ligand of Pthalocyanine? Otherwise Id have to do like you, track down a reaction base from ACS .(I know we use ACS "cookbooks" all the time)

Chemical Reviews on ACS doesn't reveal a lot ... that is why I avoided the sublimation of the ligand and instead was using a kind of educated guess reaction. Do you personally think it would work?!
