In this study, (ethylsulfanyl) porphyrazines have been modified with one peripheral ruthenium bipyridine groups. These compounds possess (bpy)2RuII moieties directly attached to the β position in the (ethylsulfanyl) porphyrazines through thioether chelation. The new compounds have been characterized by elemental analysis, FT-IR, 1H-NMR spectroscopy and mass spectra. The spectral properties such as electronic spectra, aggregation and fluorescence of compounds have been studied in THF. Insertion of (bpy)2RuII moiety on the porphyrazines structure have been investigated photophysical properties of the complexes.
