A series of partially-oxidized phthalocyanine (pc) compounds ([Ni(pc)]3[ReO4]2·C10H 7Cl, [Cu(pc)]3[SbF6]2·C10H 7Cl, [Cu(pc)]3[AsF6]2·C10H 7Cl, [H2(pc)]3[SbF6]2·C 10H7Cl, and [Ni(pc)]3[SbF6]2·C10H 7Cl) were synthesized galvanostatically. Their structures were determined by means of conventional crystallographic methods. An improved structure of [H2(pc)]3[AsF6]2·C 10H7Cl was determined from synchrotron data. The isostructural extended structures of these compounds comprise stacked trimers of M(pc) rings with anions and disordered solvents in parallel channels. Conductivity data for [Cu(pc)]3[SbF6]2·C10H 7Cl indicate that it is a semiconductor (EA = 0.22 eV).
