We report on caged Pt nanoclusters that are able to exert tumor-inside activation for anticancer chemotherapeutics and to minimize systemic toxicity. By shrinking the Pt size to 1 nm, it possesses corrodibility for dissolution in weakly acidic organelles to release toxic Pt ions. The therapeutic effect in exerting tumor-inside activation is confirmed in vivo by post-modifying a pH-cleavable PEG corona and mixing it with a tumor-homing peptide for tumour suppression.
