Xylylene groups were removed from tetrakis(o-xylylenedithio)phthalocyanines via C-S bond cleavage by treatment with toluene and aluminum chloride. Octathiolate anions generated were reacted with dichlorophenylphosphine to produce phthalocyanines with four dithiaphosphole rings. The structures of the products were determined by NMR and FABMS. Electrochemical and optical properties of them were verified by cyclic voltammetry and UV-vis spectroscopy.
