Resum

Abstract— Zn(II)phthalocyanine (ZnPc) generates O2(1Δg) with a quantum yield of ca. 0.4 upon photocxcitation at 354 or 600 nm in ethanolic solution as determined by time‐resolved phosphorescence studies at 1270 nm and photooxidation experiments using 1,3‐diphenylisobenzofuran (DPBF) as substrate. The quantum yield of photooxidation slightly increases upon incorporation of ZnPc into unilamellar liposomes of dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine. Under our irradiation conditions (600 nm, 18°C, and short light exposure times), DPBF(5–50 μM) undergoes photooxidation by a pure Type II mechanism; the rate constant for the O2(1Δg) + DPBF reaction is (1.1 ±0.1) x 109 M‐1 s_1 in ethanol solution and determined to be about two orders of magnitude smaller when both ZnPc and DPBF are embedded into liposomes.
