The title complex, [2,3,9,10,16,17,23,24-octakis(3-carboxyphenoxy)- phthalocyaninato-k 4N] (pyridine-kN)zinc(II) pyridine octasolvate abbreviated as [ZnPc(3-CO2H)8(Py)]ˑ8(Py) (2), has been obtained by recrystallization of [ZnPc(3-CO2H)8]·(1) from pyridine. Molecular structure of 2 determined by X-ray crystallography exhibits the anticipated N5 square pyramidal coordination structure around zinc(II) ion, where the average Zn-N(Pc) and Zn-N(Py) bond lengths are 2.027(4) Å and 2.121(4) Å, respectively. The deviation of the zinc(II) ion from the phthalocyanine N4 plane is 0.417 Å. Eight pyridine molecules are involved in the hydrogen bonding with the carboxylic acid moieties of phenoxy rings in a 1:1 mode. Two discrete phthalocyanine molecules in a unit cell are stacked in a back-to-back fashion with an interplanar distance of 3.376 Å. Pyridine solutions of 1 exhibit well-resolved 1H NMR, UV-Vis, and fluorescent spectra, suggesting that 1 exists as pyridine ligated monomeric species.
