Abstract

The recent advances in the synthesis of carborane and boronic ester-substituted tetrapyrroles (porphyrins, porphyrazines, and phthalocyanines) are reviewed together with their possible utilization as agents for photodynamic therapy (PDT) and boron neutron capture therapy of cancer (BNCT) as well as dual PDT/BNCT sensitizers.
