Pthalocyanine is a common macrocylic blue-green dye. It is also used as a suitable laser dye metal. Phthalocyanines have long been examined as catalysts for redox reactions. Areas of interest are the oxygen reduction reaction and the sweetening of gas streams by removal of hydrogen sulfide. Phthalocyanine compounds have been investigated as donor materials in molecular electronics.
