A “Multi‐Heavy‐Atom” Approach toward Biphotonic Photosensitizers with Improved Singlet Oxygen Generation Properties.
Abstract: Towards improved lanthanide complexes for two‐photon mediated singlet oxygen production: The very large inter‐system crossing efficiency results from the combination and interplay of bromine atom substituents, placed along the π‐conjugated antenna, and a heavy rare‐earth element coordinated to a central TACN ligand. Two‐photon activated singlet oxygen generation leads to tumor cell death, which illustrates the potential of this new class of compounds as theragnostic agents.
