Novel zinc, magnesium, and metal-free octasubstituted phthalocyanine photosensitizers bearing [(triethylammonio)ethyl]sulfanyl substituents in the peripheral or nonperipheral positions were synthesized and investigated for their photophysical properties (ΦΔ value up to 0.91, λmax up to 750 nm) and photodynamic anticancer activity. The photodynamic treatment(More)
Newly synthesized zinc phthalocyanine bearing sixteen quaternized imidazolyl moieties on the periphery displays high water-solubility, lack of aggregation and high singlet oxygen quantum yield in water (ΦΔ > 0.33). The in vitro tests indicated excellent anticancer photodynamic activity (EC50 = 36.7 nM) and low dark toxicity to non-cancerous cells (TC50 =(More)
Intramolecular charge transfer (ICT) was studied on a series of magnesium, metal-free and zinc complexes of unsymmetrical tetrapyrazinoporphyrazines and tribenzopyrazinoporphyrazines bearing two dialkylamino substituents (donors) and six alkylsulfanyl or aryloxy substituents (non-donors). The dialkylamino substituents were responsible for ICT that(More)
The formation of self-assemblies between CdSe quantum dots (QDs) and Zn phthalocyanines (Pc) and azaphthalocyanines (AzaPc) bearing alkylsulfanyl substituents and the photophysical properties of these assemblies were studied using both steady-state and time-resolved luminescence/absorption spectroscopy. The formation of the self-assemblies was accompanied(More)
A synthesis procedure for heteroatom-substituted tetra(3,4-pyrido)porphyrazines that absorb light near 800 nm was developed. Based on the observed relationships between the structure and photophysical parameters, a novel highly photodynamically active (IC50 = 0.26 μM) compound was synthesized and biologically characterized.
Tetrapyrazinoporphyrazines (TPyzPzs) bearing one, two, four or eight 3,5-di(tert-butyl)-4-hydroxyphenol moieties were synthesized as zinc(II) complexes and metal-free derivatives. The deprotonation of the phenol using tetrabutylammonium hydroxide induced the formation of a strong donor for intramolecular charge transfer that switched OFF the red(More)
The presented work deals with synthesis and isolation of constitutional isomers of triazolo-fused azaphthalocyanines. Distribution of the isomers did not follow the statistical calculations due to steric effects of the substituents preferring the least sterically stressed C(4h) isomer.
A series of zinc complexes of phthalocyanine, naphthalocyanine and their aza-analogues with alkylsulfanyl substituents was synthesized and characterized by UV-vis and MCD spectroscopy, and their redox properties were investigated using CV, DPV, and SWV approaches as well as spectroelectrochemical methods. Aggregation, photostability, singlet oxygen(More)
