BODIPY-Au(I): A photosensitizer for singlet oxygen generation and photodynamic therapy
MetadataShow full item record
Upon complexation with Au(I), a photoinactive BODIPY derivative was transformed into a highly photoactive triplet sensitizer. Along with high efficiency in singlet oxygen generation (φδ = 0.84), the new BODIPY-Au(I) skeleton showed excellent photocytotoxic activity against cancer cell lines (EC50 = 2.5 nM).
