Abstract

Laser irradiation of Copper phthalocyanine tetrasulfonate (CuPcTs) microcrystals in some poor solvents has produced CuPcTs nanoparticles with 15-112 nm in diameter. Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) images have shown densely packed nanoparticles of CuPcTs formed in methanol and acetone. The mean diameter of CuPcTs nanoparticles obtained from TEM images in methanol, 2-methy-2-propanol, ethanol, tetrahydrofuran, and acetone were determined to be 26, 36, 35, 86, and 78 nm, respectively. The size and surface morphology of CuPcTs nanoparticles have been correlated with solvent parameters such as polarity and thermal diffusivity.
