The monolayer assemblies of commercially available copper phthalocyanine (Pc) analogs, which are symmetrically substituted by the hydrophobic (cumylphenoxy or butoxy) moieties, can be constructed at the air/water interface by mixing with hydrophilic copper tetrakis (dimethylaminoethoxy) phthalocyanine (tdaCuPc). The mixed monolayers composed of commercially available copper Pc analog and tdaCuPc as a support are deposited by Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) method onto a glass plate and a quartz substrate bearing a gold-interdigitated electrode pattern. The conductivities of the LB films are increased by thermal excitation and by exposure to an acceptor gas such as nitrogen dioxide under a dry-air atmosphere.
