Compound 1 (2,4,6-tris(2-oxaphthalonitrile)-s-triazine) has been prepared by the reaction of 4-nitrophthalonitrile and cyanuric acid in dry DMF as the solvent in the presence of K2CO3 as the base. An interesting s-triazine, containing three oxa metal phthalocyanines (M = Zn, Co or Cu) has been synthesized from compound 1, 4,5-bis(hexylthio)phthalonitrile and the corresponding anhydrous metal salts (Zn (OAc)(2), COCl2 or CuCl) by the method of statistically mixed condensation. The new compounds and phthalocyanines were obtained in sufficient purity after successive washings with different solvents and were characterized by elemental analysis, UV-vis, IR, NMR and EPR spectroscopy.
