Photodynamic studies of metallo 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-methoxyphenyl) porphyrin: photochemical characterization and biological consequences in a human carcinoma cell line.


The photodynamic activities of the free-base 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-methoxyphenyl)porphyrin (TMP) and their metal complexes with zinc(II) (ZnTMP), copper(II) (CuTMP) and cadmium(II) (CdTMP) have been compared in two systems: reverse micelle of n-heptane/sodium bis(2-ethylhexyl)sulfosuccinate/water bearing photooxidizable substrates and Hep-2 human larynx… (More)
