In this paper it is demonstrated that the nature of the ligands of two Ru2(ii,iii) paddlewheel complexes dramatically affects the overall anticancer properties in cells. Herein, the complex [Ru2(EB776)4Cl] was found to be more active against a glioblastoma model with respect to its isomer [Ru2(EB106)4Cl]. These different effects depend on the steric hindrance, on the allowed conformations of the complexes and on the presence of hydrophilic regions in [Ru2(EB776)4Cl], which overall lead to a lower “steric protection”.

Abstract

In this paper it is demonstrated that the nature of the ligands of two Ru2(ii,iii) paddlewheel complexes dramatically affects the overall anticancer properties in cells. Herein, the complex [Ru2(EB776)4Cl] was found to be more active against a glioblastoma model with respect to its isomer [Ru2(EB106)4Cl]. These different effects depend on the steric hindrance, on the allowed conformations of the complexes and on the presence of hydrophilic regions in [Ru2(EB776)4Cl], which overall lead to a lower “steric protection”.
