The kinetic and photochemical parameters of the generation of reactive oxygen species, including singlet oxygen photosensitized by chlorophyll and its analogs on the basis of magnesium complexes of tetrapyrroles, are determined. It is shown that the nature of the central metal ion is the determining factor in the deactivation of formed singlet oxygen. The photosensitizing activity of tetrapyrrolic metal complexes is shown to decrease upon their aggregation.
