Abstract
A series of new octakis-substituted Germanium-phthalocyanines for use in photodynamic therapy of tumors has been synthesized. Starting from 1,4-dialkoxy-2,3-dicyano-benzene the metal-free octakis-alkoxy-phthalocyanine 13 was prepared. The metallation to the corresponding octakis-alkoxy-GeCl2-phthalocyanine 15 was done with a GeCl4-DMF complex. Alkaline hydrolysis gave quantitatively the octakis-alkoxy-Ge(OH)2- phthalocyanine 16. By substitution of the hydroxy groups with alcohols, thiols and silanols the axially disubstituted phthalocyanines were obtained. The most important photophysical properties for PDT (Q-bands, singlet oxygen quantum yields and (Phi) f) are reported.
