White Lab Develops Molecules to Deliver Carbon Monoxide and Singlet Oxygen to Cancer Cells Using Visible Light

Dr. Jessica White

The Jessica White Lab has prepared new transition metal complexes designed to both release multiple equivalents of carbon monoxide (CO) and generate singlet oxygen (1O2) when irradiated with visible light. CO and 1O2 are both molecules that have been demonstrated to lead to cancer cell death, and the spatiotemporal delivery […]
