Abstract: We report here the preparation of asymmetrical phthalocyanine dimers 1a–3a, which are endowed with novel charge transfer bands at 1,151–1,154 nm and strong NIR luminescences at 840–860 nm and 1,600–1,650 nm. Through H-bonding interaction, 1a–3a are inclined to self-assemble into hexrod nanotubes at the interface of CHCl3 and CH3OH. Our results provide further insights into the interaction in molecular dimers, and suggest that 1a–3a have potential application in magnets and supramolecular architectures.
Keywords: organic green dyes; syethesis; NIR-absorption; NIR luminescence; 1-D hexrod nanotubes
