Resumo

Monomeric zinc phthalocyanine has been studied as a promising active photosensitizer in photodynamic therapy against cancer, in which its aggregate form is non-active. This paper aimed to describe the monomer/aggregates equilibrium of zinc phthalocyanine in binary water/DMSO mixtures. To reach this aim theoretical calculation, electronic absorption, static and time-resolved fluorescence, and resonance light scattering was used. Zinc phthalocyanine shows a complex water dependence behavior in the mixture. At least three distinct steps were observed: (i) until 30% water zinc phthalocyanine is essentially in the monomeric form, changing to (ii) small slipped cofacial-aggregates around 30% to 40% water and finally to (iii) a staircase arrangement of large aggregates at higher water percent. The staircase arrangement is driven by the intermolecular coordination between the pyrrolic nitrogen lone-pairs and the central metal zinc. The water-Zn coordination governs the fluorescence quenching by a static mechanism. These results have direct relevance in the better understanding on the behavior of zinc phthalocyanine in vivo and when incorporated in drug delivery systems for clinical applications in photodynamic therapy.
