Abstract: A new series of sandwich-like lanthanide doping bis[2,3,9,10,16,17,23,24-octakis(octyloxy)phthalocyaninato] complexes Ln[Pc*]2 (Pc*=Pc(OC8H17)8, Ln=Sm, Pr, Er) were used as NO2 gas-sensing materials is described in the article. The gas-sensing films of Ln[Pc*]2 were prepared by Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) technique and the NO2 gas-sensing properties of Ln[Pc*]2 LB films were studied. The sensitive properties of Ln[Pc*]2 LB films to NO2 gas was monitored by the change of conductivity during gas exposure. Therein, Sm[Pc*]2 has the best sensitivity and responsivity to NO2 gas. The detecting range is from 0~100ppm, and the response and recovery time of 11-layer Sm[Pc*]2 LB film to 20ppm NO2 at room temperature is 16 s and 80 s, respectively. The thinner the film, the faster the response and recovery become. Recovery time in air is longer than that in pure N2.


Keywords: Gas sensor, NO2 gas, Bis[phthalocyaninato] complexes, Langmuir-Blodgett film
