In this work, cationic meso-arylsubstituted porphyrin and its Zn(II) complex were synthesized. The compounds were characterized by multinuclear NMR spectroscopy, electronic spectroscopy and ESI-mass spectrometry. The photodynamic activity of the porphyrins was studied in relation to S. aureus bacteria and their biofilms. Application of polymeric micelles of Pluronic F-127 as nanosized delivery vehicles supports high antimicrobial photodynamic activity of the synthesized porphyrins. The influence of the central metal atom on the dark and light-induced toxicity of the synthesized compounds was revealed.
