Iron phthalocyanine (FePc) thin films prepared by thermally evaporated from as received and purified powders were studied. The molecular interaction between FePc thin films and acetone vapor was studies by X-ray photoemission spectroscopy (XPS) and optical absorption spectrometer. The core level XPS spectra and optical absorption spectra showed slightly different between the spectra before and after acetone exposure. For FePc film evaporated with purified powder, only the Fe 2p3/2 spectra at about 712 eV appeared and the height of peak dramatically decreased. Iron K-edge X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES) spectra was used to investigate iron atom in as received and purified powders and also study the interaction between FePc molecule and methanol vapor. The X-ray diffraction pattern of as received, annealed and purified FePc powder were investigated to study the crystal reformation and Raman spectroscopy was used to investigate iron atom vibration in as received FePc film.
