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.
