Improvement of Photodynamic Activity of Lipid-Membrane-Incorporated Fullerene Derivative by Combination with a Photo-Antenna Molecule
CEJ_24-29_7335.pdf 841 KB
The weak absorbance of pristine C60, C70, and fullerene derivatives at wavelengths over 600 nm hampers the use of these molecules as photosensitizers (PSs) for photodynamic therapy (PDT). The coexistence of light-harvesting antenna molecules with a fullerene derivative in lipid membrane bilayers solved this issue. By controlling the location of the C60 derivative in the lipid membrane, the liposomal dyad system for PDT improved the photodynamic activity via an efficient photoenergy transfer from antenna molecules to the fullerene derivative. The photodynamic activity was found to be much higher than those of dyad systems using pristine C60 and C70.
