Abstract

A novel tetraamino silicon(iv) phthalocyanine has been prepared, of which the fluorescence emission and reactive oxygen species generation efficiency are greatly enhanced at lower pH in the range of ca. 5-7, making it a promising pH-controlled and tumour-selective fluorescence probe and photosensitiser for photodynamic therapy. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2010.
