Novel syntheses of zinc phthalocyanine (ZnPc) are achieved by exploring our hexamethyldisilazane (HMDS) method. Reactions are clean and efficient by replacing harmful and strongly smelling triethylamine with HMDS. The compound is highly soluble in organic solvents and can be used as a donor material for organic thin film photovoltaic solar cells. Copyright © 2010 VBRI press.
