An Esterase-Sensitive Prodrug Approach for Controllable Delivery of Persulfide Species.


A strategy to deliver a well-defined persulfide species in a biological medium is described. Under near physiological conditions, the persulfide prodrug can be activated by an esterase to generate a "hydroxymethyl persulfide" intermediate, which rapidly collapses to form a defined persulfide. Such persulfide prodrugs can be used either as chemical tools to… (More)
