Abstract

Background: Click chemistry can be advantageously used to graft carbohydrates on phthalocyanines which are potent photosensitisers, but the effect of the presence of triazole moieties on photodynamic efficiency was not investigated systematically to date. The nature and linkage of the sugar were investigated in order to define structure activity relationships.
