Self-organized nanostructured materials of alkylated phthalocyanines and underivatized C60 on ITO

Author affiliations

Abstract

Clicking thiols onto a core fluorous phthalocyanine (Pc) platform yields alkyl and fluoroalkyl derivatives. The Zn(II) Pc with 16 thioalkanes self-organizes with fullerene C60 into nearly monodispersed nanoparticles when cast on ITO surfaces. Particle size and surface density is controlled by varying the Pc/fullerene ratio and concentration. Fluorescence quenching indicates electronic interaction between the component molecules in the films of nanoparticles. The strong supramolecular interactions between the Pc with 8 or 16 fluorous alkanes inhibit incorporation of the fullerene.
