Metal-free and metallophthalocyanines with four 9-anthroyl groups bound through ethylthio ester bridges on the periphery have been prepared. The new compounds were characterized by elemental analyses, 1H NMR, IR, mass and UV-vis spectral data. The electronic spectra exhibit an intense π-π* transition of 9-anthroyl identity together with characteristic Q and B bands of the phthalocyanine core. Effect of metal ions on intensity of fluorescence spectra of phthalocyanine derivatives substituted with 9-anthroyl groups was investigated. The energy transfer to the phthalocyanine core and radiative decays of the 9-anthroyl emission and phthalocyanine core were examined.
