Abstract

Platinum(n) terpyridine complexes with glycosylated acetylide and arylacetylide ligands bind to DNA with binding constants ∼105 mol-1 dm3; the glycosylated arylacetylide complexes exhibit emission at λmax ≈ 620 nm in water and are up to ∼ 100-times higher in potency than the clinical cisplatin drug in killing cancer cells. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2005.
