A three-component supramolecular nanocomposite as a heavy-atom-free photosensitizer

Author affiliations

Abstract

Design of photosensitizers capable of generating singlet oxygen is crucial for the success of photodynamic therapy, and biocompatible supramolecular systems are emerging in this area. We report a supramolecular nanocomposite consisting of BODIPY, tryptophan and gold nanoparticles. While the individual components in isolation were inactive, the nanocomposite was found to be photostable and exhibited efficient photosensitization properties.
