A click-and-release approach to CO prodrugs

Author affiliations


Carbon monoxide belongs to the family of signaling molecules and has been shown to possess therapeutic effects. Similar to NO, safe delivery of CO is a key issue in developing CO-based therapeutics. Herein we report a “click and release” CO-prodrug approach, which allows the release of CO under physiological conditions without the need for light irradiation. The system releases CO in a triggered and controllable manner and possesses the potential of tunable release rates.
