Chemists at the University of California-Santa Cruz say they've developed novel compounds that show promise for photodynamic cancer therapy. The compounds, called dye-sensitized ruthenium nitrosyls, are absorbed by cancer cells and respond to specific wavelengths of light by releasing nitric oxide, which triggers the cancer cells' death, the researchers said. For cancer treatment, you want localized delivery of a very high concentration of nitric oxide, said Professor Pradip Mascharak.

Canadian chemists say they have discovered green catalysts made from iron that might replace more expensive and toxic platinum metals. University of Toronto scientists said the newly discovered catalysts might become useful in industrial chemical processes used to produce drugs, fragrances and flavors. The researchers led by Professor Robert Morris said drug synthesis most often relies on the use of catalysts, while the cost of those catalysts influences the ultimate cost of the drug.
