Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A carotenobenzoporphyrin has been prepared by covalently joining a benzoporphyrin derivative and an anilinocarotenoid by an amide linkage. A synthetic meso-diphenylporphyrin is the precursor of the benzoporphyrin moiety. The carotenobenzoporphyrin is highly fluorescent and does not sensitize measurable amounts of singlet oxygen.
