Zinc(II) phthalocyanine-loaded polymeric micelles generated singlet molecular oxygen in high yields. Photocytotoxicity assays using human nasopharynx KB carcinoma cells confirmed that the encapsulation of zinc(II) phthalocyanine in the polymeric micelles T1107 and T1307, increases its photocytotoxicity by 10 times in comparison with the free form in water–DMSO. A lysosomal localization was observed.
