A series of new scandium complexes supported by the phthalocyanine (Pc) ligand have been prepared and structurally characterized. Reaction of ScCl3 with phthalonitrile affords a mixture of PcScCl (1) and unreacted ScCl3, which upon addition of LiCH(SiMe3)(2) yields THF-soluble PcSc(mu-Cl-2) Li(THF)(2) (2). Metathesis with NaCp or LiCp* generates PcSc(eta(5)-C5H5) and PcSc(eta(5)-C5Me5), respectively, which represent the first examples of eta(5)-Cp metal phthalocyanines where the Cp fragment sandwiches the metal centre.
