An interparticle system has been devised, allowing airborne singlet oxygen to transfer between particle surfaces. Singlet oxygen is photogenerated on a sensitizer particle, where it then travels through air to a second particle bearing an oxidizable compound-a particulate-based approach with some similarities to reactive oxygen quenching in the atmosphere. In atmospheric photochemistry, singlet oxygen is generated by natural particulate matter, but its formation and quenching between particles…

Potentiation Effect of Iodine Species on the Antimicrobial Capability of Surfaces Coated with Electroactive Phthalocyanines.
The use of an inorganic salt to potentiate the photodynamic inactivation mediated by an electropolymerized surface was evaluated and the material coated with ZnPc-PEDOT was the only one capable of eliminating >99.98% of the initial microbes loading under different circumstances.
Antimicrobial Photodynamic Inactivation Using Topical and Superhydrophobic Sensitizer Techniques: A Perspective from Diffusion in Biofilms †
This review describes nanoparticle and dye diffusion in bacterial biofilms in the context of antimicrobial photodynamic inactivation (aPDI) in a combination that leads to the current state of aPDI and superhydrophobic a PDI (SH‐a PDI).


Generating singlet oxygen bubbles: a new mechanism for gas-liquid oxidations in water.
A mechanism is proposed that involves (1)O(2) mass transfer and solvation, where smaller bubbles provide better penetration of (1)-probe molecule contact at the gas/liquid interface due to higher surface-to-volume contact between the probe molecules and (1).
Photosensitized Production of Atmospherically Reactive Organic Compounds at the Air/Aqueous Interface
The results suggest that the concentrating nature of the interface leads to its being a favorable venue for radical reactions yielding complex and functionalized products that themselves could initiate further secondary chemistry and new particle formation in the atmospheric environment.
Lifetime and diffusion distance of singlet oxygen in air under everyday atmospheric conditions.
A theoretical model is employed that fully accounts for singlet oxygen diffusion, radiative and nonradiative relaxations, and the bimolecular reaction with probe molecules at the detector, and provides an excellent quantitative explanation of the experiment.
Bacterial inactivation by a singlet oxygen bubbler: identifying factors controlling the toxicity of (1)O2 bubbles.
The singlet oxygen device offers intriguing possibilities for creating new types of disinfection strategies based on photodynamic ((1)O(2)) bubble carriers, mainly by an oxygen gradient inside and outside of the bubble.
Singlet oxygen chemistry in water. 2. Photoexcited sensitizer quenching by O2 at the water-porous glass interface.
The use of a photosensitizer, meso-tetra(N-methyl-4-pyridyl)porphine (1), which was adsorbed onto porous Vycor glass (PVG) was described, which was proposed to be strongly dependent on dynamic quenching.
Photochemical reactions in the tropospheric aqueous phase and on particulate matter.
This paper is a tutorial review in the field of atmospheric chemistry. It describes some recent developments in tropospheric photochemistry in the aqueous phase and on particulate matter. The main
Fiber‐optic Singlet Oxygen [1O2 (1Δg)] Generator Device Serving as a Point Selective Sterilizer
A hollow‐core fiber‐optic device was developed with an “internal” supply of light and flowing oxygen, and a porous photosensitizer‐end capped configuration, which opened the door to simple disinfectant studies.
Singlet Oxygen in the Environment
Singlet oxygen (1O2) is produced in the environment almost exclusively by photochemical pathways. Although it can be detected in many environmental compartments, its potential roles in chemical
Singlet Oxygen Phosphorescence as a Probe for Triplet-State Dissolved Organic Matter Reactivity.
Light is shed on the fundamental photochemical properties of CDOM in organic matter isolates and whole waters and will help refine photochemical models to more accurately predict pollutant fate in the environment.
Photooxidants from brown carbon and other chromophores in illuminated particle extracts
Abstract. While photooxidants are important in atmospheric condensed phases, there are very few measurements in particulate matter (PM). Here we measure light absorption and the concentrations of
