Metal-assisted red light-induced efficient DNA cleavage by dipyridoquinoxaline-copper(II) complex

Author affiliations

Abstract

Complete cleavage of double stranded pUC19 DNA by the complex [Cu(dpq)2(H2O)](ClO4)2 (dpq, dipyridoquinoxaline) has been observed on irradiation at 694 nm from a pulsed ruby laser, assisted by the metal d-band transition as well as the quinoxaline triplet states in the absence of any external additives.
