Microscale frameworks were obtained by copper phthalocyanine-sulfuric acid blends in our proposal. In the frameworks, crystals and unoccupied space are at an equivalent-size level. During dehydration, wires spontaneously weld at their contacts to construct a framework. Dehydrated and post-annealed frameworks have morphological equivalence by the applied imaging equipment. Under incident X- and IR- rays, these α-dominated frameworks have a response of β crystallites. The identification of a new X-ray-crystallographic event in α-β transition is elusive from our obtainable information. We suggest this unidentified state tends to the responsibility of our process. Observing the self-weld and flexibility indicates the high-feasibility of a free standing framework. Our proposed process and frameworks urge for the fundamental understanding in the sulfuric recrystallization of phthalocyanine. Optimizing our process, characterizing properties of frameworks, and understanding in the formation of each phase are in progress.
