Free-base phthalocyanine forms distinct interfacial phases and thin films on hexagonal boron nitride including a monolayer arrangement as determined using high resolution atomic force microscopy. The phases reveal significant differences in photoluminescence with an intense peak for monolayer coverages of flat–lying molecules which is red-shifted in agreement with theoretical models.
