Phthalonitriles disubstituted by alkylsulfanyl moieties of different bulkiness (tert-butyl, adamantly, cyclohexyl and hexyl) and in 4,5- or 3,6-positions, respectively, set A and set B, have been prepared for comparative structural analyses. Miscellaneous parameters such as melting points and related polarity of the compounds are summarized. Substituents position and bulkiness effects on NMR and IR spectroscopy as well as refined X-ray structural data were examined.
