General description

Copper(II) 1,2,3,4,8,9,10,11,15,16,17,18,22,23,24,25-hexadecafluoro-29H,31H-phthalocyanine(F16CuPc) is an organic molecule that can be used as an electron transporting material with good air-stability and an electron mobility of 0.11 cm2/Vs . It is majorly used in a variety of energy conservation based applications.


F16CuPc can be used as an electron transporting layer for semiconducting applications such as an electron accepting material for organic photovoltaic cells and as a catalyst in biomimetic sensors. It may also be used in the fabrication of organic thin film transistors(OTFTs) and quartz crystal microbalance(QCM) based sensors.

We have utilized scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and low energy electron diffraction to determine the structural properties of two types of metal-phthalocyanines (MPcs), i.e., cobalt-phthalocyanine (CoPc) and hexadecafluorinated copper-phthalocyanine (F16CuPc) on the Ag(100) surface. For coverage close to one monolayer...
