Dinuclear metallodrugs offer much potential in the development of novel anticancer chemotherapeutics as a result of the distinct interactions possible with biomacromolecular targets and the unique biological activity that can result. Here, we describ... Read More about Homo‐ and heterodinuclear arene‐linked osmium(II) and ruthenium(II) organometallics: probing the impact of metal variation on reactivity and biological activity.

In this study, we report the synthesis and biological evaluation of a novel cationic porphyrin-[Ru(η6-arene)(C2O4)PTA] (RAPTA) conjugate with potential as a multimodal dual-therapeutic agent. In the absence of high intensity light, relative to untrea...
