The reduction of free‐base naphthalocyanine (H2Nc) with sodium fluorenone ketyl and an excess of bis(triphenylphosphoranylidene)ammonium chloride (PPN+)(Cl–) unexpectedly results in the synthesis of the (PPN+)2(H2Nc2–) salt (1). As sodium fluorenone ketyl can generate only H2Nc·– radical anions, the formation of H2Nc2– is most probably realized through the disproportionation of H2Nc·– to H2Nc0 and...
