Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are known to bind singlet oxygen with formation of endoperoxides, which can be released upon heating. This process is now capturing broad attention due to its potential in photomedicine. Singlet oxygen generation upon decomposition of endoperoxides at ambient temperatures represents an alternative to classical photodynamic(More)
This review describes the main factors affecting the in vitro development of mouse ovarian follicles under conditions of three-dimensional alginate hydrogel system. The factors discussed include concentration of alginate hydrogel, presence of additives (collagen, fibrin) influencing substrate rigidity; culture conditions; composition of culture media;(More)
This critical review discusses different approaches towards protection of photoactive materials based on triplet excited state ensembles against deactivation by molecular oxygen though quenching and photooxidation mechanisms. Passive protection, based on the application of barrier materials for packaging, sealing, or encapsulation of the active substances,(More)
Non-toxic and biocompatible triplet-triplet annihilation upconversion based nanocapsules (size less than 225 nm) were successfully fabricated by the combination of miniemulsion and solvent evaporation techniques. A first type of nanocapsules displays an upconversion spectrum characterized by the maximum of emission at λmax = 550 nm under illumination by red(More)
The synthesis and properties of a new family of pi-extended dipyrrins capable of forming brightly fluorescent complexes with metal ions are reported. The metal complexes possess tunable spectral bands and exhibit different emission properties depending on the mode of metal coordination.
We demonstrate that photoactivated oxygen addition to diphenylanthracene moities can be used as a tool for protection of porphyrin's phosphorescence against oxygen quenching. Phosphorescent palladium(II) tetrabenzoporphyrin, covalently linked to four diphenylanthracene moieties, was synthesized and studied. Upon irradiation with ambient light or red laser(More)
A synthetic route to symmetrical tetraaryltetraanthra[2,3]porphyrins (Ar(4)TAPs) was developed. Ar(4)TAPs bearing various substituents in meso-phenyls and anthracene residues were prepared from the corresponding pyrrolic precursors. The synthesized porphyrins possess high solubility and exhibit remarkably strong absorption bands in the near-infrared region(More)
The synthesis and photophysical characterization of a palladium(II) porphyrin - anthracene dyad bridged via short and conformationally rigid bicyclo[2.2.2]octadiene spacer were achieved. A spectroscopic investigation of the prepared molecule in solution has been undertaken to study electronic energy transfer in excited singlet and triplet states between the(More)
A recently developed method of synthesis of pi-extended porphyrins made it possible to prepare a series of tetrabenzoporphyrins (TBP) with different numbers of meso-aryl substituents. The photophysical parameters of free-bases and Pd complexes of meso-unsubstituted TBP's, 5,15-diaryl-TBP's (Ar2TBP's) and 5,10,15,20-tetraaryl-TBP's (Ar4TBP's) were measured.(More)
