Abstract

We report a series of novel red-emitting fluorescent cyanoaryl porphyrazine pigments which are found to be an excellent platform for preparation of bimodal tumor diagnostic agents and intracellular viscosity sensors. They also work as efficient PDT sensitizers which induce apoptosis and necrosis in cells upon irradiation with red light.
