Pure and Nile-Red-doped polyimide and porphyrin films have been deposited and their optical response to different organic vapours has been tested. Polyimide films were obtained by spin coating a solution containing 4, 4'-4, 4'-(hexafluoroisopropylidene) diphthalic anhydride and 2, 3, 5, 6-tetramethyl-1, 4-phenylenediamine. Free, cobalt and iron chloride 5, 10, 15, 20 meso-tetraphenyl porphyrin films were deposited by spin coating and by high vacuum evaporation. Exposure to water, ethanol and isopropanol vapours produce reversible changes of the fluorescence features of both pure and doped polyimide films. Exposure to methanol, ethanol and isopropanol vapours gives rise to changes of the optical absorption of porphyrin films. The results of the optical measurements point out that the synthesized films can be used for the detection of volatile organic compounds.
