Abstract:

Electrode films of lanthanide diphthalocyanines undergo a series of reversible color changes that make them potentially very attractive as flat-panel color display materials. Research on these compounds has revealed a complex scheme of electrode processes that is not yet fully characterized. The solid organic phases within the faradaic system include new room-temperature anion and cation conductors, as well as electronic semiconductors. Application of diphthalocyanine electrochromics to practical display products will depend on development of adequate cycle life and a technique for matrix addressing. Author
