3,6-Diethylphthalonitrile (3) fused with diselenadithiafulvalene (DSDTF) was prepared from 5,6-dibromo-4,7-diethylbenzotriselenole (1) and treated with lithium alkoxide to produce octaethylphthalocyanine (6) with four DSDTF units. The structure of the product was determined by 1H NMR and MALDI-TOF-MS. Electrochemical and optical properties of 6 and its nickel complex (6-Ni) were examined by cyclic voltammetry and UV-vis spectroscopy.
