Paper Abstract

The syntheses and properties of novel water-soluble phthalocyanies are reported, as well as new chemistry of tetrabutanoporphyrins aimed at the preparation of new, functionalizable, tribenzoporphyrin systems. The objective of the study is to provide new second-generation photosensitizing drugs, with long-wavelength absorption, for use in the photodynamic therapy of tumors.
