Electrochemical properties of tetra(3,5-di-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyphenyl)dodecachlorophthalocyanine complexes of cobalt(II) and lutetium(III) in DMF solutions have been studied. It was suggested that in the presence ofn-butyl bromide, the electrochemically generated monoanionic complexes undergo alkylation at the metal atom. The geometries of the neutral and anionic complexes were calculated by the ZINDO/I semiempirical method.
