Title: Influence of different peripheral substituents on the nonlinear optical properties of cobalt phthalocyanine core

Abstract

In this article, we show how the substituting different peripheral substituents around the cobalt phthalocyanine core correlate with nonlinear optical properties. We present the results on nonlinear optical properties of solution of cobalt phthalocyanine (CoPc), cobalt phthalocyanine with DNA-CTMA surfactant complex (CoPc-DNA-CTMA), and cobalt phthalocyanine with liquid crystal (CoPc-LC) measured by degenerate four-wave mixing (DFWM) method at the 532 nm wavelength region. We found that the values of third-order nonlinear optical susceptibility ({chi}{sup <3>}) of CoPc-LC and CoPc-DNA-CTMA increase in comparison with the value of the third-order nonlinear optical susceptibilities of CoPc. We supposed that this is caused by increase of the charge-transfer effects and of the dipole moments of the molecule with the increase of the chain length.

  • Electronic-structure calculations based upon the Pariser-Parr-Pople semiempirical Hamiltonian were applied to short-chain oligomers of the conducting polymer poly(p-phenylenevinylene) (PPV) to study the effects of appending methoxy groups along the backbone as well as push-pull nitro and amino groups at the ends of the oligomers. Optical absorption spectra were calculated utilizing configuration interaction methods at the single-excitation level, and the nonlinear optical properties of the push-pull oligomers were studied using the sum-over-states approach. In short-chain oligomers, the calculated electronic and optical properties are controlled by the nature of the pendant groups. However, in the longest oligomers studied, these molecular properties aremore » relatively insensitive to any of the studied modifications.« less
  • The influence of loading on the activity and stability of heat-treated carbon-supported cobalt phthalocyanine electrocatalysts for oxygen reduction was studied. The Co loading on the carbon support was varied from 0 to 8 weight percent (w/o), while heat-treatment temperatures ranging from 500 to 1100 C were studied. There is an optimum value of the Co loading on the carbon support (about 3.5 w/o) over which the catalytic activity of the Co on carbon catalyst decreases. This trend is observed in both half-cell (rotating disk electrode measurements) and H{sub 2}/O{sub 2} fuel cell measurements. The optimum value of the Co loadingmore » on the carbon support is independent of the heat-treatment temperature. An explanation is proposed for this observation. The authors have also performed short-term (1.5 to 18 h) life tests with the 3.5 w/o Co on carbon-support materials heat-treated at various temperatures. It is shown that the current density lost after 18 h of operation is a function of the heat-treatment temperature being lower the higher the temperature. The observed increase in the stability of the material with the heat-treatment temperature is best explained by considering the protective role played by the graphitic-like layer surrounding the Co metal particles.« less
  • The influence of graphene interlayers on electronic interface properties of cobalt phthalocyanine on Ni(111) is studied using both photoemission and X-ray absorption spectroscopy. A charge transfer associated with a redistribution of the d-electrons at the Co-atom of the phthalocyanine occurs at the interface to Ni(111). Even a graphene buffer layer cannot prevent the charge transfer at the interface to Ni(111); however, the detailed electronic situation is different.
  • Glycerol capped PbS/CdS core/shell type nanoparticles fabricated with two different molar ratios are characterized for study of structural and optical properties. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) pattern exhibits cubic phased polycrystalline nanocrystals. The calculated grain sizes from Williamson-Hall plot were found to be around 6 nm with increased strain. HRTEM investigation confirms the formation of core/shell nanostructures and the sizes of the particles were found to be around 7 nm which is in good agreement with the results of the W-H plot. An increase of band gap with the decrease in precursor concentration is confirmed from the blue shift in the absorption spectramore » and also from Tauc plot. A clear blue shifted intense emission is observed in the photoluminescence spectra with decrease in particle size. Intense luminescence from the core/shell nanostructure may be applied in bio labelling and biosensors.« less
