A novel one pot and solvent-free synthesis of metal(II)phthalocyanines in microwave is described. This method in comparison to conventional route offers high yields, eliminates the use of toxic and expensive organic solvents, and reduces multistep synthesis to one-step, reaction temperature and reaction time from several hours to few minutes which leads to the development of clean and environmentally benign procedure.
