2010_32/2010Fluorescent Polylactides with Rhenium(bisimine) Cores for Tumour Diagnostics (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 32/2010)

The cover picture shows the structure of a fluorescent polymer consisting of a ligand-functionalised polylactide coordinated to Re(CO)3(phen). This polymer can passively target cancer tissue and transport the fluorescent dye to the cancer cell membranes, where it can be detected by fluorescence microscopy, which enables early detection of cancer. The resulting fluorescence in the membranes of A2780 cells can be seen in the background. Details are discussed in the article by P. C. Kunz et al. on p. 5063 ff.
