Analysis of Phthalocyanine Based Pigments
by ionRocket-DART®-MS

Background

Phthalocyanine based pigments are used for organic semiconductors and organic electroluminescence displays due to its clearness, high light stability, and durability. The chemical structure is difficult to analyze due to its larger molecular weight and lower solubility.

DART®-MS with ionRocket analysis provided the structural information concisely and rapidly. The analysis was done in atmospheric conditions, and without pre-treatment.

 

Sample

Titranyl phthalocyanine, Mmi 576.0927 Da, [M+H]+: 577.1003 Da.

 

Methodionrocket-pot

The ionRocket was directly connected to the DART®-MS. The sample was put on the POT and analyzed. The temperature was increased by 100ºC per minute from 30ºC to 600ºC.
