Thin films of chlorosubstituted vanadyl phthalocyanine: charge transport properties and optical spectroscopy study of structure
Electrophysics and structure of thin films of chlorosubstituted vanadyl phthalocyanine (VOPcCl16) were studied using complementary experimental and theoretical techniques. To study charge transport properties of the latter films, organic field-effect transistors were fabricated by physical vapor deposition. The device exhibited good air stability without any extent of degradation after a storage in air for two months. The charge carrier mobility was measured to be (2.0 ± 0.1) × 10−3 cm2 V−1 s−1. This value was rationalized by poor ordering of the VOPcCl16 films revealed with the use of polarization dependent Raman and UV–Vis spectroscopies as well as by X-ray diffraction. Apart from this, we performed a detailed assignment of all intense bands in the vibrational spectra of VOPcCl16. To this end, the experimental IR and Raman data were complemented by quantum chemical calculations at the B3LYP/6-311++G(2df,p) level of theory.
