Abstract: The meso-tetrakis (4-N, N, N-trimethylanilinium) porphyrin and its zinc compound deposited on glass slide at high temperature and at a pressure of 15 PSI were used as photo-inactivation surface. Also, the effect of two porphyrin compounds irradiated with tungsten lamp, on a Gram negative bacterium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and a Gram positive bacterium, Bacillus subtilis was investigated.
