Abstract

(Figure Presented) A stable 1:1 host-guest complex is formed between a silicon(IV) phthalocyanine conjugated axially with two permethylated β-cyclodextrin units and a tetrasulfonated porphyrin. The complex exhibits a light-harvesting property and works as an efficient photosensitizing system, killing HT29 human colon adenocarcinoma cells with an IC50 value of 0.09 μM. © 2007 American Chemical Society.
