Abstract
The photosensitization mechanism and kinetics of hematoporphyrin derivative (HPD), photofrin II (PF-II) and Zn2+-phthalocyanine tetrahydroxyl (ZnPC) are compared with the newly introduced sensitizers Zn2+ and Mg2+-tetrabenzoporphyrin (ZnTBP and MgTBP), in lipid vesicles. 9,10-dimethyl anthracene was used as a fluorescent target for singlet oxygen-mediated photosensitization. From the kinetics the quantum yield of singlet oxygen generation was calculated. MgTBP is compared with hematoporphyrin for the ability to photodamage bacterial cells and human cancer cells. MgTBP was found to have a comparable capacity for such a biological effect.
