New Ru(II) arene complexes of formula [(η6-p-cym)Ru(N-N)(X)]2+ (where p-cym = para-cymene, N-N = 2,2'-bipyrimidine (bpm) or 2,2'-bipyridine (bpy) and X = m/p-COOMe-Py, 1-4) were synthesised and characterized, including the molecular structure of complexes [(η6-p-cym)Ru(bpy)(m-COOMe-Py)]2+ (3) and [(η6-p-cym)Ru(bpy) (p-COOMe-Py)]2+ (4) by single-crystal(More)
Fostered by the success of photodynamic therapy (PDT), the use of light to activate prodrugs is currently gaining momentum in bio-medical research. In principle, photoactivation allows to spatially and temporally control the biological effects of a prodrug, hence conferring selectivity to its action and reducing unwanted drawbacks. In the last few years,(More)
