Novel photochemistry of leuco-Methylene Blue

Chem Commun (Camb). 2003 Sep 21;(18):2366-7. doi: 10.1039/b307228b.

Abstract

leuco-Methylene Blue has a previously unrecognized, very reactive, UV-driven triplet state photochemistry and, in particular, undergoes photo-oxidative quenching with dissolved oxygen.
