A novel approach to axially induce chirality on silicon phthalocyanines via a microwave-assisted route is reported. CD analysis provides spectroscopic evidence that chirality is transferred onto both Soret and Q-bands of the phthalocyanine core. A chiral naphthalenediimide ligand was found to induce the largest Cotton effect on the macrocycle absorptions.
