Non-covalent functionalized SWNTs as delivery agents for novel Bodipy-based potential PDT sensitizers

Author affiliations

Abstract

Pyrenyl-functionalized distyryl-Bodipy sensitizer attached non-covalently to SWNTs was shown to generate singlet oxygen when excited at 660 nm with a red LED array; this work emphasizes the potential of SWNT as a viable alternative carrier of bioactive agents, including photodynamic therapy sensitizers.
