A monohydroxylated octasubstituted phthalocyanine, aimed at being used as a synthon for further conjugation, has been designed to offer rigorous comparison conditions to study the effect of the presence of an active moiety, compared to its non-functionalized symmetric analogs. After the validation of the concept using computational methods, the designed phthalocyanine was prepared and exhibited the expected suitable electronic absorption properties. Biotin conjugation was performed.
