Cu2ZnSnS4 nanocrystals for microwave thermal and microwave dynamic combination tumor therapy

Author affiliations

Abstract

Cu2ZnSnS4 nanocrystals (CZTS NCs) have been demonstrated to be effective in tumor therapy as a novel susceptible agent for microwave thermal and microwave dynamic therapy. CZTS NCs intensify the heating effect of microwaves with a significant temperature increase of about 15 °C compared to the control group and showed remarkable anti-tumor performance after 5 min of microwave irradiation. For the first time, we report the microwave absorption performance and singlet oxygen production of CZTS NCs used in microwave therapy, which reveals new opportunities for novel combined mechanisms of microwave thermal and microwave dynamic tumor therapies.
