|Title:||FERROUS PROTOPORPHYRIN WITH ENHANCED PHOTODYNAMIC ANTIBACTERIAL PROPERTY||Authors:||SHRUTHI SREEKUMAR||ORCID iD:||orcid.org/0000-0002-0265-5786||Keywords:||Photodynamic Therapy, Antibacterial, Modified Protoporphyrin IX||Issue Date:||5-Aug-2022||Citation:||SHRUTHI SREEKUMAR (2022-08-05). FERROUS PROTOPORPHYRIN WITH ENHANCED PHOTODYNAMIC ANTIBACTERIAL PROPERTY. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Public surface transmission is one of the most common methods of transmitting communicable diseases.The development of self-activating disinfectants is a novel idea. In this study, we have developed a photosensitizer that can be used as a photo-activated disinfectant. We have used Ferrous Protoporphyrin IX (FePPY9) which is a photosensitizer that can absorb visible light and shift to higher energy which will produce cytotoxic electrons and radicals when dropping back to a lower energy state.The enhanced antibacterial activity portrayed by FePPY9 is investigated using model organism, Escherichia coli, a Gram-negative bacteria.||URI:||https://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/235005|
