Conjugated polyelectrolytes are used to specifically inactivate proteins under light irradiation through their assemblies with proteins by electrostatic or metal ion-mediated coordination interactions. Upon light irradiation, the polymer produces reactive oxygen species that react with and inactivate adjacent proteins. The present work adds a new dimension to the function of conjugated polymers.
