Rigid rod polyisocyanopeptide compounds bearing phthalocyanines as pendant groups have been synthesized through copper(I)-catalyzed azide–alkyne cycloaddition of polyisocyanopeptides bearing acetylene groups and zinc(II) phthalocyanine azide. As confirmed by UV/Vis, fluorescence, and circular dichroism spectroscopies, the phthalocyanine units are arranged in a helical fashion along the polymer backbone, thus forming the longest well-defined phthalocyanine assembly described to date.
