Studies on the interaction of extended terpyridyl and triazine metal complexes with DNA.
The interaction with duplex DNA of a series of 12 previously synthesised ruthenium (II) complexes incorporating extended terpyridines or analogous ligands is reported. The interaction was investigated using absorption spectroscopy and also, when possible, luminescence spectroscopy. Binding parameters for the interactions were estimated using established models. It was found that binding affinities are relatively large and their magnitude is somewhat dependent on the metal centre attached to t...Expand abstract
