A novel μ-oxo hetero dimer of silicon phthalocyanine and silicon naphthalocyanine was synthesized. Its unique optical properties, such as a single Q band, which is unusual for hetero dimer species, and solvatochromic behavior, were revealed to be better interpreted by taking interchromophore interactions into consideration.
