  • A Phthalocyanine is a macrocyclic compound having an alternating nitrogen atom-carbon atom ring structure. The molecule is able to coordinate hydrogen and metal cations in its center by coordinate bonds with the four isoindole nitrogen atoms.
  • Phthalocyanine (Pc) is a beautifully symmetrical 18 p-electron aromatic macrocycle, closely related to the naturally occuring porphyrins.
  • The raw materials required for manufacturing phthalocyanine blue are phthalimide, urea, cupric chloride, catalyst, alkali and acid. The above raw materials can be sourced from local chemical dealers/agents.
  • The reactants, phthalimide, cupric chloride, urea and ammonium molybdate are taken in requisite proportions in powdery form, mixed thoroughly and packed densely in the reactor.
  • The equipments required for the proposed unit are pulverisers, mixer, reactors, ball mill, mixing tank with stirrer, rotary press, rotary/tray driers and pumps etc. Other miscellaneous equipments like electrical & piping installations are required.
    Copper Phthalocyanine dyes are produced by introducing solubilizing groups, such as one or more sulfonic acid functions in CPC structure. These dyes find extensive use in various areas of textile dyeing (Direct dyes for cotton), for spin dyeing and in the paper industry. Direct blue 86 is the sodium salt of CPC-sulfonic acid whereas direct blue 199 is the ammonium salt of the CPC-sulfonic acid.
  • The organic amine salts of these sulfonic acids used as solvent dyes because of their solubility in organic solvents, e.g. Solvent Blue 38 and Solvent Blue 48.The dye derived from Cobalt PC and an organic amine is Phthalogen Dye IBN.
  • 1,3 Diiminoisoindolene, the intermediate formed during Phthalocyanine manufacture, used in combination with a copper salt affords the dye GK 161.
  • The fluoraluminium Phthalocyanine has been extensively studied for potential use as a target molecule in anti-cancer treatment.
  • Many types of chemical sensor based on phthalocyanines have been proposed - including thin film resistive devices, FET sensors and Langmuir-Blodgett films.
  • Phthalocyanine pigments hold significant position in the pigment trade owing to their excellent properties such as resistance to alkalies and acids, non-bleeding in solvents, brilliancy of colour, tinting strength, covering power and light fastness. They dominated the market within a short period of their introduction into the market.
  • The copper phthalocyanine is the most sought after pigment along with its derivatives like the green (chlorinated) and the sulphonated dyes. It has wide applications in paints, printing inks, paper colouring, textiles (the dye), rubber, plastics, water colors etc. There is an export market for the blue as well as its derivatives. At present there are about ten producers in the country manufacturing Phthalocyanine blue with a total annual capacity of about 2000 tonnes.
