Photodynamic therapy (PDF) is a good method to treat types of cancer such as skin cancer. This method depends on the properties of the dye sensitizers. We focused on the dye metal complexes because they absorb in visible to infra-red area with high intersystem crossing which is important condition to occur PDT. The dye metals complexes of boron-dipyrrin , pyridyl, chlorins, bacteriophorbides, texaphlins and phthalocyanines dyes exhibited low toxicity in dark condition, absorption in visible to infrared area, high toxicity under irradiation for many diseases of cancer, various, and bacteria.
