Two PcSnIV dicarboxylate molecules were obtained through efficient microwave methodology with the aim to test them as corrosion inhibitors in the oil industry. The compounds were characterized by elemental analysis, IR, UV−vis, 1H, 13C NMR, and X-ray diffraction. The relative configuration of the two carboxylates is cis, placing the fatty acid moieties on the same face of the phthalocyanine macrocycle. In the solid-state the tin atoms possess square antiprismatic octacoordinated geometries. Both tin phthalocyanines were tested as corrosion inhibitors for hydrogen sulfide corrosive media showing a chemisorption process of the nanocap motifs on the metallic surface. Apparently, the length of the hydrophobic chain contributes significantly to the inhibition efficiency, in the sense that shorter chains increase the efficiency.
