Background: Pd(II) Octaethylporphine is a synthetic porphyrin specialty chemical manufactured by Frontier Specialty Chemicals. The triplet sensitizer Pd(II) octaethylporphine (PdOEP) was found to possess absorption involving a hot vibrational energy-level, resulting in one-photon absorption (OPA) upconversion emission.A sol-gel doped with Pd(II) octaethylporphine was used as a high performance optical trace oxygen sensor.2 Pd(II) Octaethylporphine acts as a triplet sensitizer for the frequency upconversion of light in the presence of a suitable acceptor/ annihilator such as 9,10-diphenylanthracene.3 The photophysics of Pd(II) Octaethylporphine at 77 K and room temperature have been reported.4,5 Noncoherent sensitized green-to-near-visible upconversion has been achieved utilizing palladium(II) octaethylporphyrin (PdOEP) as the triplet sensitizer.6 A recent review on triplet-triplet annihilation upconversion has been published.7
