Complexation of copper(II) 2,3,9,10,16,17,23,24-octahydroxy-29H,31H-phthalocyanine (CuPcOH) with copper(II) ions gives a two-dimensional (2D) metal-organic framework (MOF). This is the first report of a phthalocyanine-based MOF. This 2D MOF was obtained as a black powder and showed an electrical conductivity of 1.6×10−6 S cm−1 at 80 °C. When this MOF is used as a cathode of lithium ion battery (LIB), large charge/discharge capacities of 151/128 mAh g−1 were obtained. In addition, it showed a good stability during 200 charge/discharge cycles. The obtained LIB performance mainly originates from the electrically conductive and redox-active framework of the phthalocyanine-based 2D MOF and its hierarchical microporous/mesoporous structure.
