original image

Anticancer metallodrugs based on biologically friendly titanium(IV) offer attractive alternatives to currently used platinum-based chemotherapy. In their Communication on page 10515 ff., E. Y. Tshuva, S. Magdassi, et al. present the high anticancer activity of water-resistant salan–titanium(IV) compounds when formulated into nanoparticles. A cellular active species was also identified.
