Abstract This paper continues a series of works devoted to synthesis and investigation of mixed-substituted phthalocyanines which combined on their periphery benzotriazolyl and aryloxy groups. Eight new alkylsulfamoyl derivatives of tetrakis-4-(1-benzotriazolyl)tetrakis-5-[1(2)-naphthoxy]phthalocyanines of copper and nickel were synthesized. Method of polarization microscopy revealed that copper phthalocyanines containing eight octadecyl or diethylsulfamoil fragments in 2-naphthoxy groups possess thermotropic mesomorphism.Besides, tetrakis-4-(1-benzotriazolyl)tetrakis-5-(1,6-di(octadecylsulfamoyl)-2-naphthoxy)phthalocyanine of copper forms lyomesophases both in polar and apolar organic solvents. Mesomorphic properties were also induced by introducing of four octadecylsulfamoyl groups in the non-mesogenic molecule of tetrakis-4-(1-benzotriazolyl)tetrakis-5-(1-naphthoxy)phthalocyanine of copper. Liquid crystalline properties were not observed in case of nickel phthalocyanines.
