The absorption spectra of metal-centered phthalocyanines (MPc’s) have been investigated since the early 1960’s. With improved experimental techniques to characterize this class of molecules the band assignments have advanced. The characterization remains difficult with historic disagreements. A new push for characterization came with a wave of interest in using these molecules for absorption/donor molecules in organic photovoltaics. The use of zinc phthalocyanine (ZnPc) became of particular… CONTINUE READING
