Abstract

We report an amphiphilic macromolecule containing a cyclometalated gold(III) complex that self-assembles into nano-sized micelles and also displays a long-lived emissive triplet excited state with a lifetime of 84 μs in degassed water. This amphiphilic AuIII complex exhibits good biocompatibility and activity towards in vitro photo-toxicity, as well as enhanced permeability and retention effects in vivo.
