Lanthanide porphyrinoids as molecular theranostics

This Review summarises the history and the ‘state-of-the-art’ development of lanthanide (Ln) porphyrinoids as theranostic agents. Applications such as near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence imaging (FL), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), radiotherapy, chemotherapy and phototheranostics will be discussed.

Porphyrinoid actinide complexes

The diverse coordination modes and electronic features of actinide complexes of porphyrins and related oligopyrrolic systems (referred to as “porpyrinoids”) have been the subject of interest since the 1960s.

Focusing on a nickel hydrocorphinoid in a protein matrix: methane generation by methyl-coenzyme M reductase with F430 cofactor and its models

Methyl-coenzyme M reductase (MCR) containing F430 as a nickel hydrocorphinoid cofactor is responsible for anaerobic methane generation and oxidation. This review describes the fundamental function and recent protein-based functional models of MCR.
