Supramolecular graphene–phthalocyanine assemblies for technological breakthroughs
Since the discovery of the well-structured carbon material, graphene (G), a huge research effort has been made to use it in several technological applications, such as photonic and nanoelectronic materials, due to its electrical, mechanical and thermal properties. The supramolecular functionalization of graphene with other molecules, such as phthalocyanines (Pcs), results in nanohybrids with improved photophysical properties. This review intends to show the impact of the scientific investigation that has been done on G–Pc supramolecular assemblies, in an attempt to improve their electronic performance, introducing new opportunities to their application in nanotechnology.
