The effect of the electron withdrawing or donating character of groups located at the periphery of the phthalocyanine ligand, as well as the influence of polar and nonpolar solvents are of importance for the redox chemistry of metal phthalocyanines. Continuous wave and pulse electron paramagnetic resonance and pulse electron nuclear double resonance spectroscopy at X- and Q-band are applied to investigate the electronic structure of the complexes Cu(II)phthalocyanine (CuPc), copper(II) 2,9,16… CONTINUE READING
