Reactivity of the trap compounds, PEA 1 or NEA 2, with singlet
oxygen inside Leishmania parasites was also examined by emission spectroscopy.
Artificial sources of radiation may also contribute to endogenous singlet
oxygen formation in humans.
This panel of assays has led to the term, Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity using Multiple Radicals (ORAC-MR), which is a sum of the antioxidant capacity against six of the most predominant reactive species found in the human body: ROS (peroxyl radical, hydroxyl radical, superoxide anion, singlet
oxygen), RNS (peroxynitrite) and RCS (hypochlorite).
The researchers find that the fission process happens as soon as just two of these molecules are in contact, and remarkably, that singlet
fission is then completely efficient-so that every photon produces two triplets.
The requirements of an optimal photosensitizer include photo-physical, chemical, and biological characteristics: (i) highly selective tumor accumulation; (ii) low toxicity and fast elimination from the skin and epithelium; (iii) absorption peaks in the low-loss transmission window of biological tissues; (iv) optimum ratio of the fluorescence quantum yield to the interconversion quantum yield (The first parameter determines the photosensitizer diagnostic capabilities, and plays a key role in monitoring the photosensitizer accumulation in tissues and its elimination from them; the second parameter determines the photosensitizer ability to generate singlet

Intended applications include photoluminescence, singlet
oxygen measurement, LIDAR, Raman spectroscopy, cathodoluminescence, fluorescence, and fluorescence life time.

Tokyo, Japan, Feb 15, 2007 - (JCN) - The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) announced their recent discovery that high-order fullerene C82 and metal-containing fullerene (both Nano-Carbons) can efficiently remove singlet
oxygen (which causes oxidation).
Indeed, this novel technology has already been used in quantum cryptography and silicon microprocessor failure analysis, and has the potential to cross into applications such as singlet
oxygen detection in biomedical research and Raman LIDAR for long-range toxic materials detection.
