The reaction of NO2-group nucleophilic substitution in mononitrophthalocyanines has been studied using quantumchemical calculations (DFT//PBE/TZ2P). The reaction is shown to proceed through the ipso-complex formation due to negligible energetic barrier (0.2 kcal/mol) of the transition state on the 2-σ–-complex → products route.


Keywords: Phthalocyanine, nucleophilic substitution, ipso-complex, DFT.
