In this study, new cobalt phthalocyanine containing a 2-(2-benzothiazolylthio)ethoxy group at peripheral positions has been synthesized and characterized by spectroscopic methods (IR, UV-Vis elemental analysis, and mass spectroscopies). Catalytic activity of Co(II) phthalocyanine has been investigated in the presence of oxidants such as tert-buthylhydroperoxide, m-chloroperoxybenzoic acid, and H_2O_2. Co(II) phthalocyanine shows catalytically activity and product conversion under mild conditions. To find the optimal conditions in the oxidation process, substrate ratio, oxidant ratio, temperature, and oxidant type were examined over 3 h. The results exhibit the best optimum reaction conditions in this catalytic system.
