Influence of Subphase Parameters on the Nanostructures of 5,10,15,20-Tetraphenyl-21H,23H-Porphine Films at Air-Water Interface
Abstract:In this work, we have evaluated the influence of concentration of 5,10,15,20-tetraphenyl-21H,23H-porphine solutions on π-A isotherms, varying the pH of subphase. The obtained π-A isotherms indicated the existence of different aggregation states and the dependence of area/molecule with the pH was established. There is an increase in the area/molecule for both pH = 5 and pH = 8 in low concentrations with a marked increase for the acid pH. Such trend has given such clearly evidence that proton (H+) effect in the chromophore macrocycle is potentially indicated for the pH-sensitive gas sensors.
