Investigation of Structural Properties of CuPc/TiO2 Nanocomposites
Structural properties of hybrid nanocomposites based on TiO2 nanostructures and Copper phthalocyanine (CuPc) were investigated. The composites were prepared by mixing TiO2 nanoparticle (TNP) and nanotube (TNT) with CuPc suspension. The precipitated composites were obtained by centrifuged and dried processes. Structural properties of the composites were evaluated by mean of Raman Spectroscopy and X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (XAFS). The results implied that CuPc has interatomic distance of C atoms in the second shell are decreased when CuPc is in the hybrid composites.
