Mixed phthalocyaninato tetrakis(4-pyridyl)porphyrinato rare earth triple-decker complexes M2(TPyP)2(Pc) [M = La (1), Eu (2)] have been prepared by condensation between M(TPyP)acac generated in situ and M(Pc)2. Their symmetrical structure (TPyP)M(Pc)M(TPyP) was verified by 1H NMR (1D and 2D) spectra in CDCl3 solutions. The electronic absorption spectra of these two compounds were recorded in the UV/Vis and near-IR region. A weak absorption in the near-IR region at 860 and 942 nm for 1 and 2, respectively, was observed as the lowest energy band and is attributed to the electronic transition from HOMO to LUMO for these mono(phthalocyaninato) bis(porphyrinato) rare earth complexes. Their electrochemical properties were investigated by cyclic voltammetry (CV) and differential pulse voltammetry (DPV). Analysis of the relationship between the optical and redox properties of M2(TPyP)2(Pc) reveals that the HOMO and LUMO of M2(TPyP)2(Pc) have both porphyrin and phthalocyanine character.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
