WCUS collaborates in new anti-cancer work, published in Nature Chemistry

New research published last week in Nature Chemistry demonstrates a novel highly oxidative Ir(iii) photocatalyst, which is phototoxic towards both normoxic and hypoxic cancer cells.This research was a large collaborative project between groups in China, Switzerland, France, and the UK. WCUS contributed time resolved phosphorescence data to the study, which demonstrated an extremely long phosphorescence lifetime of the photocatalyst, thus leading to a very high oxidation turn over number making it a very effective anti-cancer agent.
