A pH-responsive fluorescence probe and photosensitiser based on a tetraamino silicon(iv) phthalocyanine

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel tetraamino silicon(IV) phthalocyanine has been prepared, of which the fluorescence emission and reactive oxygen species generation efficiency are greatly enhanced at lower pH in the range of ca. 5–7, making it a promising pH-controlled and tumour-selective fluorescence probe and photosensitiser for photodynamic therapy.
