Abstract
Abstract Synthesis of photodynamic and photothermal agents with absorption in the near-infrared (NIR) region and featuring excellent photostability, high singlet oxygen generation efficiency, good photothermal conversion efficiency, and good biocompatibility is necessary for the application of photodynamic therapy (PDT) and phtothermal therapy (PTT). Three NIR absorption compounds based on thieno[2,3- b ]indole (TI) and diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP) were designed and synthesized. Their UV-vis-NIR absorption, photoluminescence, electronic distribution, energy levels and thermally induced phase transitions have been carefully determined. As structural analogues, only DPP-TI possesses excellent singlet oxygen quantum yield ( 1 O 2 , Φ Δ  = 48.5%), which displays effective photothermal conversion efficiency (η = 15.8%) as nanoparticles in water. The potential of DPP-TI nanoparticles as fluorescence imaging therapeutic agent for synergetic PDT and PTT in vitro using only one wavelength light were explored preliminarily.

Synthesis of photothermal agents with absorption in the near-infrared (NIR) region and featuring excellent photostability, high photothermal conversion efficiency, and good biocompatibility is necessary for the application of photothermal therapy (PTT). In this work, a low band gap thiophene–benzene–diketopyrrolopyrrole (TBD)-based polymer was synthesized and used to fabricate TBD polymer nanoparticles (TBDPNPs) through a one-step nanoprecipitation method. The obtained near-infrared-absorbing TB...

Upregulation of highly reactive oxygen species (ROS) such as hypochlorite (ClO–) is associated with many pathological conditions including cardiovascular diseases, neuron degeneration, lung injury, and cancer. However, real-time imaging of ClO– is limited to the probes generally relying on fluorescence with shallow tissue-penetration depth. We here propose a self-assembly approach to develop activatable and degradable photoacoustic (PA) nanoprobes for in vivo imaging of ClO–. A near-infrared abs...

Both photothermal therapy (PTT) and photodynamic therapy (PDT) are phototherapeutic approaches, which have been widely investigated for cancer therapy mediated by an external light source. Here, a nanosystem presenting the synchronous PTT and PDT effect realized through one-step near-infrared (NIR) light irradiation is reported. This system was fabricated by conjugating indocyanine green (ICG) on hollow gold nanospheres (HAuNS) using branched-polyethylenimine (PEI, MW = 10 kDa) as optimal linker...

Herein, a donor–acceptor–donor (D-A-D) structured small molecule (DPP-TPA) is designed and synthesized for photoacoustic imaging (PAI) guided photodynamic/photothermal synergistic therapy. In the diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP) molecule, a thiophene group is contained to increase the intersystem crossing (ISC) ability through the heavy atom effect. Simultaneously, triphenylamine (TPA) is introduced for bathochromic shift absorption as well as charge transport capacity enhancement. After formation of ...

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) has been applied to treat a wide range of medical conditions, including wet age-related macular degeneration psoriasis, atherosclerosis, viral infection and malignant cancers. However, the tissue penetration limitation of excitation light hinders the widespread clinical use of PDT. To overcome this “Achilles' heel”, deep PDT, a novel type of phototherapy, has been developed for the efficient treatment of deep-seated diseases. Based on the different excitation sources, ...

Lanthanide ion doped upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) are known to be able to convert long-wavelength excitation light (usually 980 nm) into high-energy ultraviolet (UV) or visible emissions, and they have attracted significant attention because of their distinct photochemical properties including sharp emission bands, low autofluorescence, high tissue penetration depth, inertness to ambient interference and minimal photodamage to tissues. Until now, UCNPs have shown great potential in various...

A complete one- and two-photon spectroscopic and photophysical characterization of three diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP)–porphyrin conjugates is reported. The increased conjugation introduced by the incremental addition of one, two and four DPP units on the meso porphyrin positions strongly affects the optical properties of the systems. Ground and triplet excited state absorption spectra show a gradual broadening and bathochromic shift and a trend to lower energies is also observed for both fluoresce...

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) can effectively avoid the damages on the normal tissues and organs compared to the traditional cancer treatment methods because of its non-invasive property for the body and high selectivity to tumor site upon light irradiation. Rational design of photosensitizers (PSs) with specific targeting towards tumors and on-site activation is strongly desirable for precise cancer photodynamic therapy. Herein, a novel hydrophilic tumor-targeting photosensitizer (DTDPP-HA) is syn...

A universal synthetic strategy toward thieno[3,2-b]indole (TI) derivatives was developed. Three conjugated polymers (PTIBT, PTITBT and PTIDTBT) containing N-alkyl-TI as the donor units, 2,1,3-benzodiathiazole (BT) as the acceptor units and thiophene as the spacers were synthesized. The thiophene spacers have a dramatic impact on the physical and electrochemical properties of these copolymers. These polymer donors were used for the fabrication of bulk heterojunction polymer solar cells (PSCs). Pr...

Cyanide (CN−) is one of the most hazardous ions to humans and the environment. Therefore, sensitive, and selective sensors for CN− monitoring are highly required. A novel chemosensor based on naphthalene flanked diketopyrrolopyrrole dye (TBC-DPPN) is synthesized for the direct detection of CN− in water samples by naked eye and vibrational spectroscopy (UV–Vis and fluorescence). The electron deficient carbonyl group of the lactam ring of TBC-DPPN undergoes a nucleophilic attack by the CN− thus ca...

Photothermal therapy (PTT) is a minimally invasive treatment that kills cancer cells by converting photon energy into heat. The past few decades have witnessed the booming development of photothermal materials, mainly focusing on precious metal nanomaterials and carbon nanomaterials, such as nanogold and silver and nanocarbon materials for near-infrared (NIR) light-triggered PTT. As precious metals are expensive and potentially harmful to humans, exploration and development of a new type of phot...

Chromophore-fullerene C60 hybrids present interesting properties to act as heavy atom-free photosensitizers and reactive oxygen species (ROS) producers. Here, two new diketopyrrolopyrrole–C60 conjugates were efficiently synthesized and characterized. Conjugates show broadband absorption in the visible spectral region, in which diketopyrrolopyrrole dyes act as light-harvesting antenna with very high capacity to populate excited triplet states. Furthermore, the ability of diketopyrrolopyrrole–C60 ...
