Preparation and Gas-Sensing Property of Coppertetra-Iso-Propoxyphthalocyanine Spin-Coating Film
The thin films of copper 2, 9, 16, 23-tetra-iso-propoxy phthalocyanine (i-pro-CuPc) were prepared by spin-coating technique. The surface morphology and spectroscopy property of the thin films were characterized by AFM, UV-Vis and FT-IR spectra. The results show that good films can be obtained under certain spinning speed. The gas-sensing properties of the multilayers to three alcohols gas were measured at room temperature. The spin-coating thin films exhibited high sensitivity and rapid response- recovery characteristics to these gases. The response and recovery time of the thin films to 30*10-6 v/v of C2H5OH vapor is only 28 s and 55 s, respectively.
