Abstract

The subject of phosphorescent metalloporphyrins is reviewed, focusing mainly on the development and application of Pt- and Pd-porphyrins. A summary of their general chemical and photophysical properties, and guidelines for rational design of the phosphorescent labels, bioconjugates and probes is given. Examples of different detection formats and particular bio-analytical applications developed in recent years are presented. The potential of phosphorescent porphyrin label methodology is discussed and compared to that of the long-decay fluorescent lanthanide chelates and other common fluorophores.
