Effect of biscyanine dyes on Langmuir DPPC monolayer formation and characteristics.

Brazil / Бразилия

Biscyanine dyes are considered promising photosensitizers for photodynamic therapy of cancer. BCD molecules stimulate the cluster formation in BCD-DPPC Langmuir monolayers. BCD molecules do not penetrate the cluster interior and bind on their frontier. The changes in the BCD absorption spectra in Langmuir monolayers reveal the dye aggregation during the monolayer formation.
