The synthesis, fluorescence properties and singlet oxygen generation capability of germanium tetrabenzotriazacorrole (LGeTBC), germanium phthalocyanine (Cl[Formula: see text]GePc) and their derivatives are described. Measurements include UV-vis absorption spectra, fluorescence emission spectra, fluorescence quantum yields fluorescence lifetimes, and singlet delta oxygen quantum yields. LGeTBC and its derivatives exhibit quite different spectral and fluorescence properties from their phthalocyanine precursor. Both LGeTBC and Cl[Formula: see text]GePc show high singlet delta oxygen quantum yields and suitable fluorescence quantum yields, indicating that they can act as good singlet oxygen photosensitizers for photodynamic therapy.
