Epub 2015 Nov 14.Manganese(III), cobalt(II), copper(II), magnesium(II), zinc(II) and metal-free phthalocyanines, possessing 1,4,7-trioxanonyl substituents, at their non-peripheral positions, were subjected to photochemical, photodynamic and biological activity studies. Demetallated phthalocyanine and its metallated d-block analogues, with copper(II), cobalt(II), manganese(III) chloride, were found to be less efficient singlet oxygen generators in comparison to the zinc(II) analogue and zinc(II) phthalocyanine reference.
