Three substituted zinc (II) phthalocyanines (one anionic, one cationic and one hydrophobic) have been compared to two clinically used photosensitisers, 5,10,15,20-tetra (m-hydroxyphenyl) chlorin (mTHPC) and polyhaematoporphyrin (PHP), as potential agents for photodynamic therapy (PDT). Oxygen-consumption experiments, performed to follow the photo-oxidation of tryptophan, histidine and bovine serum albumin (BSA), suggest that the anionic phthalocyanine is the most efficient photosensitiser.
