Magnesiumphthalocyanine (MgPc) is a blue pigment whose X-phase is known to exhibit an intense near-IR absorption. The near-IR absorption of MgPc has been investigated from the standpoints of exciton coupling effects on the basis of the crystal structure. Two kinds of six-coordinate MgPc complexes were grown from solution and their structures were analyzed: MgPc/(H2O)2ยท(N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone)2 (crystal 1) and MgPc/(2-methoxyethanol)2 (crystal 2). In both crystals, two oxygen atoms of the solvent molecule are coordinated to the central Mg atom above and below the molecular plane, forming a distorted sp 3 d 2 octahedron. Of these crystals, only crystal 1 exhibits a near-IR absorption whose spectral shape is quite similar to that of the X-phase. In addition, the X-phase is also found to contain two water-molecules in the normal ambient atmosphere. The near-IR absorption in both crystal 1 and the X-phase can reasonably be interpreted as arising from exciton coupling effects based on the molecular arrangement of MgPc/(H2O)2.

More about this publication?
  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
