Supramolecular Photoactivatable Anticancer Hydrogels

1 month 1 week ago

Newton Fellow V. Venkatesh and co-workers from the Sadler group just published their work on a new way to deliver photoactivatable anticancer drugs by incorporation into hydrogels.

The group’s ongoing efforts might prove to be seminal for the development of metal-based photoactivatable topical agents for the treatment of lung, oesophageal and other accessible cancers.

Highly reactive molecule imaged for the first time by David Fox group & IBM published in Nature Nanotechnology.

3 months 1 week ago

David Fox who spearheaded the project along with Anish Mistry in collaboration with IBM have synthesised and imaged a highly reactive molecule for the first time, Triangulene. It was first hypothesised in the 1950’s and ever since, chemists have struggled to synthesise it until now.

Triangulene, a triangular fragment of graphene which contains two radicals is predicted to have desirable properties for electronic devices. For more information see the article attached.
