Mestranol moieties clicked to Zn(II)phthalocyanine for controllable photosensitized oxidation of cholesterol

Abstract

Four mestranol moieties were chemically linked to Zn(II) phthalocyanine (4) by cycloaddition “Click” reaction using a tetra-azidoethoxy substituted Zn(II)-phthalocyanine (3). The alkyl-azido coupling reaction was realized between azido grou...
