Aluminum phthalocyanines (AlClPc) adsorbed on the surface of silica nanoparticles with diameter of 60 nm in aqueous solutions have been found to form H-aggregates, which possess characteristic absorption spectra with bands (having maximum at 640 nm) in a shorter wavelength region with respect to the main Q-band of the monomer (having maximum at 670 nm). For AlClPc on the surface, J-aggregates of two types (long-wavelength bands with maxima at 740 and 770 nm) are also observed. Using nanosecond laser photolysis (with the excitation wavelength of 337 nm) in deoxygenated solutions of AlClPc on the surface, the formation of the triplet excited states of J-aggregates has been detected. Triplet excited states of J-aggregates are characterized by a broad absorption spectrum in the region of 600–800 nm and a lifetime of 360 µs.
