Abstract
We studied the pH-dependence of the fluorescence and absorption spectra of concentrated solutions of tetrasulphonated aluminum phthalocyanine (AlPcS4)--the potent photosensitizer for the photodynamic therapy of cancer. The possible use of AlPcS4 as the pH-sensitive fluorescent probe for local pH measurements is discussed. By means of numerical Alentsev's procedure the individual spectral components of the fluorescence spectrum main band were resolved.
