Abstract

Functionalised triazole aldehydes are used in the highly selective self-assembly of water compatible, optically pure, low symmetry Fe(II)- and Zn(II)-based metallohelices. Sub-micromolar antiproliferative activity is observed against various cancerous cell lines, accompanied by excellent selectivity versus non-cancerous cells and potential for synergistic combinatorial therapy with cisplatin.
