Abstract:
Various metal phthalocyanines have been used as dyes, catalysts, indicators, electrophotographic receptors and more recently as active elements in chemical sensors and photoconductive materials for solar energy conversion applications. Of the MPc's, VOPc, GaPc-Cl and TiOPc have shown promise for solar energy conversion devices. GaPc-Cl has also shown promise as a chemical sensor. Up to this point in time, the focus of Pc research in this group has been in the direction of characterizing the photoelectrochemical properties of these materials. Recently, solid state studies of TiOPc have been done to determine the electronic properties of a tetravalent metal Pc, such as conductivity and photoconductivity. Such solid state measurements are facilitated by the use of interdigitated microelectrode arrays which are coated with thin films of various Pc's.
