Paper Abstract

The photon counting technique and flashlaser excitation were applied to the timeresolved measurement of photosensitized singlet oxygen luminescence in organic and aqueous media. The quantum yields for singlet oxygen generation have been measured in solutions of photosynthetic pigments synthetic and natural porphyrins porphyrins conjugated with monoclonal antibodies furocoumarins flavins fluorescein tetracycline and endogenous photosensitizers of human lens. The data obtained indicate that the measurement of the singlet oxygen luminescence is a reliable tool to study the photosensitizing activity of drugs and to elucidate primary mechanisms of photodynamic destruction. 1.
