Photophysical studies of substituted porphyrins
Ground-state, fluorescence and triplet-state parameters, together with singlet oxygen quantum yields are presented for two porphyrins with extensive substituents at both the β-pyrrole and meso positions. The relevance of the results to the photodynamic therapy of cancer is discussed.
