A ruthenium tetra-t-butylphthalocyanine bisaxially ligated with 3,5-bis(2,2′-bithiophene-5-yl)pyridine was synthesized from ruthenium tetra-t-butylphthalocyanine dimer. The complex was electropolymerized (in CH2Cl2 and CH3CN, with and without addition of BF3·Et2O) to yield an insoluble conjugated metallopolymer, which was characterized by cyclic voltammetry and UV-vis spectroelectrochemistry. The polymer combines the electrochemical and spectral properties of the phthalocyanine and of a polythiophene-type conjugated polymer. In the presence of BF3, the polymer can be reversibly p-doped and de-doped. Materials obtained in CH2Cl2 (tested in the same solvent) and in CH3CN/BF3 (tested in CH3CN) exhibit an unusual hysteresis of redox properties. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved
