Platinum(II) complexes of the type Pt(L)(cat)] (1 and 2), in which H(2)cat is catechol and L represents two 2-(2-pyridyl)benzimidazole ligands with 4,4-difluoro-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene (BODIPY) pendants, were synthesized to achieve mitochondria-targeted photocytotoxicity. The complexes showed strong absorptions in the range =510-540nm. Complex 1 exhibited intense emission at =525nm in 1% DMSO/water solution (fluorescence quantum yield of 0.06). Nanosecond transient absorption spectral features indicated an enhanced population of the triplet excited state in di-iodinated complex 2. The generation of singlet oxygen by complex 2 upon exposure to visible light, as evidenced from experiments with 1,3-diphenylisobenzofuran, is suitable for photodynamic therapy because of the remarkable photosensitizing ability. The complexes resulted in excellent photocytotoxicity in HaCaT cells (half maximal inhibitory concentration IC50 approximate to 3m, =400-700nm, light dose=10Jcm(-2)), but they remained non-toxic in the dark (IC50>100m). Confocal microscopy images of 1 and Pt estimation from isolated mitochondria showed colocalization of the complexes in the mitochondria. Complex 2 displayed generation of reactive oxygen species induced by visible light, disruption of the mitochondrial membrane potential, and apoptosis.
