The first excited state of molecular oxygen, O2(1Δ g ), lying at 0.98 eV above the ground state, O2(3Σ g -), is relatively long-lived as a consequence of the multiple forbiddenness of the O2(1Δ g ) → O2(3Σ g -) transition. As a result, O2(1Δ g -) shows high reactivity to organic substrates, and irreversible photo-oxidative damage may occur. A typical example is that singlet oxygen is believed to be the cytotoxic species generated in the photodynamic therapy (PDT) of cancer.
