Cationic phthalocyanine dendrimers as potential antimicrobial photosensitisers

Author affiliations

Abstract

In the present study we describe the synthesis, photophysical properties and the photoinactivation performance against representative microorganisms of two families of cationic dendrimeric phthalocyanines as potential photosensitisers. Four charged dendrimeric compounds varying in their degree of ionicity (4 or 8 positive charges) and the coordinating metal (zinc or ruthenium) are compared and assessed as potential photosensitising agents in terms of their antimicrobial activity.
