Abstract: Phthalocyanines are non-natural porphyrinoids with an incredible structural versatility allowing a fine tailoring of their properties for catalytic applications such as methane oxidation and carbon dioxide oxidation, and can also be used in sensors. Because metaled phthalocyanines are excellent triplet photosensitisers that can be used in various photo-applications, we also have developed several strategies to produce efficient photosensitisers for photodynamic therapy.
