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 therapy (PDT), which is limited by hypoxia and reduced light penetration into cancer tissue. Moreover, endoperoxide formation with… CONTINUE READING
