Low-toxicity metallosomes for biomedical applications by self-assembly of organometallic metallosurfactants and phospholipids

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new and convenient strategy for the preparation of metallosomes has been developed by mixing organometallic metallosurfactants and phospholipids. These aggregates show the characteristic properties of liposomes (stability upon dilution and low toxicity) and the toxicity is at least ten-fold lower than that of the metallosurfactant aggregates without phospholipids.
