Phthalocyanines: old dyes, new materials. Putting color in nanotechnology

Author affiliations

Abstract

Phthalocyanines are versatile building blocks for fabricating materials at the nanometer scale. These colored macrocycles exhibit fascinating physical properties which arise from their delocalized π-electronic structure. This article describes why these molecules are targets for different scientific purposes and technological applications.
