    3. 3. Phthalocyanines are extremely stable planar molecules with C s symmetry They have an 18 π -electron heterocyclic aromatic system Introduction
    4. 4. Introduction <ul><li>Phthalocyanines are a derivative of porphyrins </li></ul><ul><li>A porphyrin is a heterocyclic macrocycle derived from four pyrrole-like subunits interconnected via methine (=CH-) bridges connecting their α carbon atoms. </li></ul>
    5. 5. Introduction <ul><li>Porphyrins are naturally occurring products. </li></ul><ul><li>They can be found in many of our own body’s synthesis. </li></ul><ul><li>Protoporphyrin IX is formed from Protoporphyrinogen oxidase and then Ferrochelatase converts it to Heme, which is a critical metalloprotein in the body. </li></ul>Protoporphyrin IX Heme
    6. 6. Introduction <ul><li>Phthalocyanines are the result </li></ul><ul><li>of the reaction of phthalanonitrile </li></ul><ul><li>with metals or metal salts at </li></ul><ul><li>elevated temperatures. </li></ul><ul><li>A typical reaction of the development of phthalocyanines can be seen in the formation of copper phthalocyanine. </li></ul>phthalanonitrile
    7. 7. Introduction <ul><li>Copper Phthalocyanine is the most stable of the phthalocyanines and potentially the most stable organic compound ever. </li></ul>4
    8. 8. History <ul><li>The word phthalocyanine is derived from the Greek words for naphtha, meaning rock oil and cyanine, meaning blue </li></ul><ul><li>This term was first used by Sir Patrick Linstead in 1933 to describe a new class of organic compounds. </li></ul><ul><li>Phthalocyanine itself, however, is believed to have been discovered in 1907 as an accidental by-product of the synthesis of o-cyanobenzamide </li></ul>
    9. 9. History <ul><li>The development of phthalocyanine started in 1928 at Scotland Dyes Works </li></ul><ul><li>The workers using phthalimide found it to be contaminated with a dark colored impurity </li></ul><ul><li>They called in their scientists to isolate the product and determine its nature. </li></ul>
    10. 10. History <ul><li>They collected samples of the impurity but it was still mixed with the phthalimide. </li></ul><ul><li>They found that treating the impurity with boiling water separated the two compounds. </li></ul><ul><li>Phthalimide dissolved in the water but the impurity remained in its solid form. Simple filtration separated the two. </li></ul>
    11. 11. History <ul><li>With further investigation it was found that the impurity was extremely resistant to both heat and most reagents. </li></ul><ul><li>Phthalimide was made from phthalic anhydride and ammonia in a large enamel coated iron drum </li></ul><ul><li>They found some small chips in the enamel of the drum leading them to believe that some iron had gotten into the phthalimide and created the impurity. </li></ul>
    12. 12. History <ul><li>They determined that Iron was the source of the dark color and they set out to remove the iron. </li></ul><ul><li>They tried boiling it with hydrochloric acid and testing for it in filtered liquid and testing it with ammonium thiocyanate. </li></ul><ul><li>Iron was not removable by these means. </li></ul>
    13. 13. History <ul><li>The problem was sent to Royal College of Science where attempts were made to dissolve iron compound in concentrated sulphuric acid. </li></ul><ul><li>Concentrated nitric acid removed </li></ul><ul><li>color and turned substance into white </li></ul><ul><li>precipitate when poured into ice-cold </li></ul><ul><li>water. Isolation and examination </li></ul><ul><li>revealed that it consisted of pthalimide. </li></ul>
    14. 14. History <ul><li>When cuprous chloride was added to molten phthalimide, there was a vigorous reaction with the formulation of a colored product. </li></ul><ul><li>They determined that the metals had to be a key part of the structure of this new compound. </li></ul><ul><li>With this new element in the mix, J. Monteath Robertson at the Royal College of Science set out to discover the structure of the molecule. </li></ul>
    15. 15. History <ul><li>First he determined the empirical formula using micro-combustion techniques. </li></ul><ul><li>Once he had the empirical formula the molecular weight was also determined. </li></ul>
    16. 16. History <ul><li>Using the molecular weight and knowing that the product must have an isoindole skeleton similar to phthalimide, he deduced the structure. </li></ul><ul><li>This structure was later confirmed by x-ray contour diagrams. </li></ul>Isoindole phthalocyanine

    28. 28. Synthesis of Phthalocyanine Procedure <ul><li>Obtain 1mmol of the metal chloride or chloride hydrate salt </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Flame-dry flask if the metal is hydrated </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Add 3 mmol of phthalonitrile and 3mL of N,N-dimethylethanolamine. </li></ul><ul><li>Add a dry reflux condenser containing a drying tube at the top and bring the contents to reflux in a sand bath. </li></ul><ul><li>Reflux until the solution turns deep blue, then allow it to cool to RT.

    29. 29. Synthesis of Phthalocyanine Reaction 18  -electron aromatic macrocycle Pc can host over 70 different metal ions in its central cavity Metals included in this experiment: Ni Co Mg Cu Li Zn Mn
    30. 30. Challenges in Synthesis The central metal is used as a template, activating the bonding of the Phthalonitrile. For efficient synthesis, the central metal must be a particular size. If too large a metal is introduced, the synthesis may not take place. A metal that is too small may fall out of the central hole. 2
    31. 31. Large-Scale Synthesis The first phthalocyanine to be manufactured commercially was copper phthalocyanine. It was made in 1934, in England. A similar product was synthesized in the United States in 1937 by Du Pont. Traditional Synthesis Methods: Heating the phthalonitrile to 350-360ºC for 7 hours in a sealed tube, or heating the phthalonitrile to 170-180ºC in triethanolamine for 4 hours. Simply adding 4 moles of phthalonitrile to 1 mole of metal salt at 220-250ºC for 2-6 hours. This procedure would result in a 70-77 percent yield of PC on a plant scale.
    32. 32. Large-Scale Synthesis Phthalonitrile Processes for industrial yields (90-93% based on phthalonitrile consumed) : <ul><li>A closed system is charged with reactants and heated to 140ºC under 5atm. Air was partially removed. An exothermic reaction takes place, and the system achieves a temperature of 300ºC. The product was allowed to cool overnight. </li></ul><ul><li>Processes done in solution used phthalonitrile, pyridine, and either nitrobenzene, trichlorobenzene, or monochlorobenzene under pressure. These processes achieved similar yields. </li></ul>
    33. 33. Summary The ideal size for the central metal of the Pc is in the low 70pm ionic radius range. <ul><li>Heating the solution for a greater amount of time may have significantly increased the yields of the products. </li></ul>Improvements: <ul><li>Running the reaction under an inert gas such as nitrogen or under vacuum may have helped the reaction. </li></ul>Analysis: To determine if the desired product was created, an IR, UV-Vis, and EPR was run on each metal Pc.
    34. 34. Analysis: IR Spectroscopy IR region measures the spectrum between the visible and microwave regions. Practical use ranges from 400-4000cm -1 <ul><li>Asymmetrical C-N=C vibration at 1486cm -1 </li></ul><ul><li>C-N bending at 1000-1250cm -1 </li></ul><ul><li>C-H stretching 2850-3000cm -1 </li></ul><ul><li>In substituted Pc’s, a strong absorption between 1430-1470cm -1 occurs with increases in alkyl chain length. This is related to the vibration mode of CH 2 and CH 3 groups. </li></ul><ul><li>Small peaks in the 740-900cm -1 range is attributed to the breathing modes of the Pc. </li></ul>
    35. 35. Analysis UV-Vis Spectroscopy UV-Vis Spectral range is from 525nm-750nm and it is identify electronic transitions in molecules. Types of Electronic Transitions: Transitions can be metal-to-ligand (MLCT) or ligand-to-metal (LMCT). MLCT are much more common. < 1L/mol-cm d-d spin-forbidden < 10L/mol-cm for Oh or up to 100 L/mol-cm for nearly Oh complexes d-d spin-allowed 1000-10000 L/mol-cm Charge-Transfer Molar absorption coefficient Transition
    36. 36. Analysis: Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (EPR) <ul><li>Method of analysis is to follow the energy change as unpaired electrons flip in a magnetic field B 0. </li></ul><ul><li>Microwave radiation is constantly introduced to the sample and transitions are seen as absorption at a frequency υ </li></ul><ul><li> E = h υ = g μ B B 0 </li></ul>μ B is the Bohr Magneton 9.27401 x 10 -24 J T -1 The g value for a free electron is 2.0023, but the value can differ as a result of spin-orbit coupling.
    37. 37. Analysis: Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (EPR) We would not expect to see an EPR in Pc compounds that do not have unpaired electrons. Compounds that are rather dilute will not exhibit a measurable EPR either. <ul><li>EPR spectra can be obtained for systems having several unpaired electrons, but obtaining a background is rather difficult. </li></ul><ul><li>Systems having an odd number of unpaired electrons are easier to detect whereas species with an even number of electrons can be difficult to detect. </li></ul>
    38. 38. Infrared Spectroscopy <ul><li>The infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum is divided into three different sections: near, mid and far infrared </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(400-10cm -1 ) The far-infrared region has low energy and it used for rotational spectroscopy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(4000-400cm -1 ) The mid-infrared region is used to study vibrations and rotational-vibrations associated with structure </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(14000-4000cm -1 ) The near-infrared region has higher energy and excites overtone and harmonic vibrations </li></ul></ul>
    39. 39. Background <ul><li>Infrared spectroscopy works by picking up different energy levels created by the specific frequencies of chemical bonds </li></ul><ul><li>The different frequencies are determined by the shape of the molecule, the mass of the atoms and the bond energies </li></ul>

    46. 46. IR of Metal Free Phthalocyanine <ul><li>Characteristic bands of metal free phthalocyanines: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Band at 1010cm -1 is characteristic of the H 2 Pc ring vibrations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Peak at 3341cm -1 and weak absorption band at 3280cm -1 is from the stretching vibrations of the N-H bonds </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>There are several skeletal vibrations ranging from 1090-740cm -1 that are not present in metal phthalocyanines </li></ul></ul>
    47. 47. IR Spectral Analysis <ul><li>In plane stretching vibration of N-H bonds enhances the peak at 1610 in the metal free phthalocyanine because of the existence of the extra NH 2 group </li></ul><ul><li>Metal Ligands absorb in the region at 200-550cm -1 </li></ul><ul><li>There are few other absorptions in this region </li></ul><ul><li>Metal phthalocyanines have strong absorption bands at 1470-1430cm -1 </li></ul><ul><li>Addition of the metal ligand causes different vibrational modes of the CH 2 and CH 3 groups </li></ul>

    49. 49. EPR: Theory <ul><li>Spectroscopy = Measurement and interpretation of different energy states in an atom or molecule </li></ul><ul><li>Planck’s Law: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Δ E=hv </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Δ E=hv=g μ B B 0 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ g-factor” = proportionality constant (≈2), varies on electronic configuration of the electron </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>μ B = Bohr magneton (unit of magnetic moment) </li></ul></ul>
    50. 50. <ul><li>Like NMR, an applied magnetic field B 0 creates an energy difference between m s =- ½ and m s =+½ </li></ul><ul><li>Unlike NMR, we are looking at spins from electrons (NMR investigates nuclear transitions) </li></ul>EPR:Theory Reference: <ul><li>Selection rule: only transitions between ±m I , I = nuclear spin </li></ul><ul><li>+1->-1, -1->+1, 0->0 </li></ul>
    51. 51. EPR Theory <ul><li>Zeeman effect: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The electron’s magnetic moment causes it to align either parallel or anti-parallel to the applied magnetic field. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lowest energy: μ aligned with field (“parallel”, m s = -½) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Highest energy: μ aligned against the field (“anti-parallel”, m s = +½) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The energy of these two states diverge as the field is applied. </li></ul></ul>Reference:
    52. 52. EPR:Theory <ul><li>Unlike conventional spectroscopy, continuous-wave EPR keeps the electromagnetic radiation (frequency) constant while varying the applied magnetic field. </li></ul><ul><li>This is due to limitations in magnetic field applications </li></ul><ul><li>Resonance occurs when the separation of the energy levels equals the energy of the microwave photons </li></ul>Reference: P. Atkins, T. Overton, “Inorganic Chemistry” 4th edition, W.H. Freeman and Company, New York NY. 2006 , p. 181.
    53. 53. EPR:Theory <ul><li>Frequency substantially affects the resonance field </li></ul><ul><li>We used “X-Band”: ≈9.75GHz. This is pretty standard for continuous-wave EPR. </li></ul><ul><li>Others can be used to compliment information gathered with X-Band </li></ul>Reference:
    54. 54. EPR:Theory <ul><li>Hyperfine structure: The spin of an electron will couple to surrounding magnetic nuclei. </li></ul><ul><li>This results in a local magnetic field at the electron: either supplementing or opposing the applied field </li></ul><ul><li>This splits each Zeeman level into two more (2I+1) </li></ul><ul><li>Selection rule: only Δ m s =+1, Δ m l =0 allowed </li></ul>
    55. 55. EPR:Theory <ul><li>Superhyperfine structure: shows the coupling of the metal to ligand nuclei </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Shows the extent of delocalization and covalent bond character </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Hyperfine and superhyperfine structure show what surrounds the metal: how many atoms, how close, etc </li></ul>
    56. 56.

    57. 57. Phthalocyanines & EPR <ul><li>The hyperfine structure of the EPR will depend on the metal in the phthalocyanine (copper should have four: I=3/2 for d 9 complexes) </li></ul><ul><li>Presence of superhyperfine structure will determine the delocalization / covalent character of the two nitrogen-metal dative bonds </li></ul>
    58. 58. EPR: MgPc
    59. 59. EPR: Analysis <ul><li>Since Mg is not a transition metal, no hyperfine structure is observed </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The source of the unpaired electron must be the ligand, not the metal </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The g-factor of 2.007 is slightly higher than g e of 2.0023, indicating a higher local magnetic field than the one supplied </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Phthalocyanines are paramagnetic </li></ul></ul>
    60. 60. EPR: Analysis <ul><li>If phthalocyanines are paramagnetic on their own, where does it come from? </li></ul><ul><li>Studies on oxidation intermediates by Moser have proven that the unpaired electron is on some π -bond, and not on the central metal atom </li></ul><ul><li>In a study done by Assour and Harrison, it was hypothesized that the unpaired electrons come from: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A chemical or physical impurity, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Presence of oxygen in the molecule, or.. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A delocalized electron from a broken π -bond </li></ul></ul>Reference: Moser, Thomas, Phthalocyanine Compounds, Reinhold Publishing, New York 1963 , pp49-52.

    62. 62. UV/Vis <ul><li>Metalloporphyrins show many characteristic bands: two Q bands between 500 and 600nm, an intense B band between 380 and 420nm, and weak N, L, and M bands. N at ~325nm, M at ~215nm, and L in between N and M. </li></ul><ul><li>The lower energy Q band comes from the electronic origin Q(0,0) of the lowest-energy excited singlet state. The higher energy Q band includes one mode of vibrational excitation Q(1,0). The B band is attributed to the origin of the second excited state B(0,0). </li></ul><ul><li>The literature lists ranges for the molar extinction coefficients.

Future Applications <ul><li>The uses for phthalocyanines are expanding from their roles primarily as pigments and dyes. </li></ul><ul><li>They are becoming important aspects of research in the following areas: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>HIV Treatment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Photodynamic Therapy </li></ul></ul>
    77. 77. Organic Light Emitting Diodes <ul><li>Electrical current is applied to the cathode </li></ul><ul><li>Transfer of electrons to the emissive layer, causes electrons from the conductive layer to move to the anode, leaving positively charged holes. </li></ul><ul><li>Upon build up of charge, electrons and electron holes move towards each other (electrostatic attraction), and combine closer to the emissive layer </li></ul><ul><li>Drop in energy of the electron results in light emission </li></ul>Image Courtesy and Copyright © 1996-2005 Silicon Chip Publications Pty Ltd & Web Publications Pty Limited.
    78. 78. Organic Light Emitting Diodes <ul><li>Problem: Indium tin oxide (ITO) anode diffuses into the organic layer during operation. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Shortens lifetime </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Solution: Use of metal phthalcyanines (MPc) as hole injection layers on the ITO. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Absorbs light mainly from 600-700 nm, and very weakly from 400-500 nm, making them ideal for blue-green displays </li></ul></ul>
    79. 79. Organic Light Emitting Diodes <ul><li>Trials involving CoPc, CuPc, ZnPc, NiPc, SnPc, MnPc, and FePc as hole injection layers have found… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Bright green emission for all at λ max = 525 nm </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Increase in luminance: Co doubles luminance (Co>Ni>Zn>Cu>Mn>Fe>Sn>No MPC) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Increase in emission efficiency </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Significant decrease in turn-on voltage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Except for SnPc and FePc </li></ul></ul></ul>
