Abstract

Nanostructuring of phthalocyanine-based materials is a powerful tool towards the preparation of new materials with outstanding properties. It has been previously shown that porphyrin-functionalized and phthalocyanine-functionalized polymers give rise to nanosized aggregates. With the goal in mind of searching new phthalocyanine-containing polymeric materials that are able to self-organize into stable supramolecular nanostructures, we have prepared unsymmetrically functionalized Zn(II) phthalocyanines that are able to behave as initiators in the atom transfer radical polymerization of styrene. Hybrid phthalocyanine–polystyrene materials of different tail lengths have been prepared, and their self-organization behavior was studied by means of UV–Vis spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy
