Synthesis of a novel magnesium porphyrazine 6,peripherally substituted with S4 crown ether-TTF macrocycles was described. Molecular structure has been fully characterized by 1H-NMR, IR, MS, and elemental analysis. Crystal structure of the precursor was determined by X-ray crystallography. Their solution electrochemical data showed two reductive and three oxidative processes within a -1.3 V to -1.5 V potential window. UV/Vis spectroscopy and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) measurements revealed the formation of a charge-transfer complex between porphyrazine 6 with F4TCNQ. UV/vis spectroscopy showed that addition of the transition-metal ions led to dimerization of the porphyrazine complexes.
