Abstract

A hydrophobic diradical-platinum(ii) complex was solubilized in aqueous solutions by using bovine serum albumin and exhibited photothermal conversion under near-infrared (NIR) light irradiation. The complex was introduced into cancer cells and induced cell death upon absorption of NIR. These results imply that the complex can function as a photothermal therapeutic agent.
