Abstract: Phthalocyanines are new class of photosensitiser used for photodynamic therapy. These drugs are used to treat small and superficial tumours. In recent years, a particular attention has been given to phthalocyanine in order to search suitable photosensitisers that can be clinically used as photodynamic cancer drug. The zinc phthalocyanine (ZnPc) has been reported to have suitable photophysical properties in photodynamic therapy. Recent work done on zinc phthalocyanine dynamic has proven that the energy transfer from singlet state to triplet state occurs on ultrafast timescale and the determination of the ultrafast component remains a challenge
