Author affiliations

Abstract

As a novel prodrug activation strategy Pd(0) nanoparticles, entrapped within a modular polymeric support, were used in cell culture, to synthesise the anticancer agent PP-121 from two non-toxic precursors, thereby inducing cell death in the first example of in situ mediated drug synthesis.
