Functional Porphyrin Thin Films Deposited by Matrix Assisted Pulsed Laser Evaporation

Materials Science and Engineering B (Impact Factor: 2.12). 05/2010; 169. DOI: 10.1016/j.mseb.2010.01.036

ABSTRACT We report the first successful deposition of functionalized and nanostructured Zn(II)- and Co(II)-metalloporphyrin thin films by matrix assisted pulsed laser evaporation onto silicon wafers, quartz plates and screen-printed electrodes. The deposited nanostructures have been characterized by Raman spectrometry and cyclic voltammetry. The novelty of our contribution consists of the evaluation of the sensitivity of the MAPLE-deposited Zn(II)- and Co(II)-metalloporphyrin thin films on screen-printed carbon nanotube electrodes when challenged with dopamine.
