Leading light: Encapsulation and confinement of ruthenium complexes in biocompatible poly(d,l-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) nanoparticles has been performed. The Ru complex@PLGA nanosuspensions are stable. Once gathered in tumor tissues, irradiation would autoaccelerate the release and hence the toxicity of the Ru complex (see figure), thus making these nanoparticles candidates for photodynamic therapy (PDT) and two-photon excited PDT.
