2], a simple geometrical definition of the photodynamic dose is applied (Potter et al.
4 shows the dependence of the photodynamic dose on the incident light dose for PPME and PPa.
4) is valid for calculating the photodynamic dose of PPa molecule.
Depending upon this result, we recommend when calculating the photodynamic doses to apply Eq.
The phoptodegradation of PPa is more efficient than that of (PPME) but the photodynamic dose of PPME is greater than that of PPa.
