A photobleaching resistant polymer supported hexanuclear molybdenum iodide cluster for photocatalytic oxygenations and photodynamic inactivation of Staphylococcus aureus

Author affiliations

Abstract

The ability of a hexanuclear molybdenum cluster, [Mo6I8(CH3COO)6]2−, to carry out, upon irradiation, singlet oxygen mediated photocatalytic oxygenation reactions has been tested. This complex has been also supported on a solid polymeric matrix, yielding an immobilized photosensitizer with remarkable photostability and recyclability. Preliminary studies of antibacterial photoinactivation of Staphylococcus aureus have been conducted, with positive results.
