Paper Abstract

Amorphous siliceous materials with molecular dispersions of organic molecules, TPPS, TMPyP and DAQ were prepared by a sol-gel process in which Si(OC2H5)4 was hydrolyzed in weak acid solution. Effect of ultrasonic irradiation on the sol-gel process was studied for the TPPS/a-SiO2 system in order to attain the further molecular dispersions and shorten the sol-gel reactions. Optical properties of TMPyP doped sol-gel thin films were observed. An amorphous silica thin film which was doped with TMPyP on the order of 1 X 10-3 mol/mol SiO2 showed photochemical hole burning at 20 K. the TMPyP/a-SiO2 was heat-treated at various temperatures and the changes of optical spectrum were observed as a function of temperature. It was found that the sample was comparatively stable up to 200 degree(s)C. Apparent quantum yields of PHB of porphines and quinizarin in polymer or sol-gel film and bulk were discussed.
