Abstract

Highly ordered PcPS (phthalocyaninatopolysiloxane) thin films have been produced on a variety of substrates using Langmuir-Blodgett thin-film deposition techniques, with coverages ranging from 1 to 100 molecular layers. Siloxane-polymerized cofacial phthalocynines, with alkoxyhydrocarbon side chains on the individual Pc units, yield molecules capable of forming highly ordered, densely packed LB films. These ultrathin films shows facile electron and ion transport during electrochemical and chemical oxidation and notable stability of the PC cation radicals in the polymer chains.
