Assays of the biodistribution of intravenous phthalocyanine showed a greater accumulation in the liver, followed by cancer tissue, pointing to the liver as a central organ in the uptake of these molecules (19,20).
Types of pigments: Blacks (carbon black), Blues (phthalocyanine), Greens (phthalocyanine), Reds (bon reds/ maroon, lithol rubine, napthol red, perylene maroon, quinacridane red, quinacridane violet, red lake c, toluidine red), Yellow and oranges
Phthalocyanine pigments are general-purpose pigments used extensively in printing inks and plastics.
In a study by Stuchinskaya et al., a 4-component photosensitizing compound composed of phthalocyanine PS, an antibody (anti-HER2 monoclonal Ab), polyethylene glycol and an Au-NP, was used as a potential drug for targeted photodynamic cancer therapy.
Furthermore, the phthalocyanine rings can be formed by self-cross-linked through the -CN group in pendants or in the end of macromolecular chain of PEN [68], which can improve the dielectric properties and thermal stability of the composites.
The solution spectrum in acetonitrile is dominated by the typical phthalocyanine Q-band absorption, with its maximum peak at 675 nm and a shoulder peak at 610 nm, which was also observed in gas-phase measurements of unsubstituted ZnPc [17].
Phthalocyanine has exceptional physical and chemical properties that allow many elements to be included within its structure as compared to other photosensitizers.

Being so, the use of DCP can be encouraged to many applications including synthesis of substituted phthalocyanines with the most diverse ligands.
Pigment (blue): Copper phthalocyanine blue pigment (Sigma Aldrich).
In this work, we examine the effect of chemical treatment with talwen at different immersion time (40, 60 and 80 min) on structural properties and surface morphology of the blend (copper phthalocyanine tetrasulfonic acid tetrasodium salt/poly dioxyethylenethienylene doped with polystyrenesulphonic acid) (CuPcTs/PEDOT:PSS) thin films created by spin coating, and there effect on N[Osub.2] gas sensitivity to know the best properties for used as gas sensing.
