Novel CoPc, CuPc, Fe(OAc)Pc and Mn(Cl)Pc were synthesized by using original 4-chloro-5-(2-isopropyl-5-methylphenoxy)phthalonitrile in order to investigate their potential redox applications suitable with their chemical and physical characteristics. The molecular structures of new compounds were determined with spectroscopic methods such as elemental analysis, FT-IR, UV–vis, NMR and MALDI TOF MS. Redox behaviours of Fe(OAc)Pc and Mn(Cl)Pc complexes have been probed by using diverse voltammetric techniques such as cyclic (CV) and square wave voltammetry (SWV). In addition, the colour alterations accompanying spectral changes were perused concurrently with electrocolorimetric measurements, and electrocatalytic efficiencies of the all compounds were perused in oxygen reduction reaction.
