Enhanced cytotoxicity of silver complexes bearing bidentate N-heterocyclic carbene ligands

Author affiliations

Abstract

A diverse library of cationic silver complexes bearing bis(N-heterocyclic carbene) ligands have been prepared which exhibit cytotoxicity comparable to cisplatin against the adenocarcinomas MCF7 and DLD1. Bidentate ligands show enhanced cytotoxicity over monodentate and macrocyclic ligands.
