Paper Abstract

Kinetics of laser induced phosphorescence of singlet molecular oxygen was measured with nanosecond resolution at 1270 nm in air-saturated aqueous solutions of tetrakis(4- sulfonatophenyl)porphine, tetra sodium salt (TPPS). The phosphorescence kinetic curve comprised the rise and decay phases that are well described by exponentials with the rise time constant, (tau) r equals 2.16 +/- 0.08 microsecond(s) and decay time constant, (tau) d equals 3.15 +/- 0.15 microsecond(s) , the rise corresponding to the kinetics of energy transfer from triplet porphyrin to molecular oxygen, the decay - to deactivation of singlet oxygen. Within the accuracy of our measurements both (tau) r and (tau) d did not depend on pH in the range 5.8-9, laser powers in the range 0.32-1.6 W/cm2, the porphyrin concentrations in the range 13-48 (mu) M and the presence of phosphate buffer saline.
