Abstract

We report a conjugate between carbon quantum dots and a NOphotoreleaser able to photogenerate the anticancer NO radicalviaan energy transfer mechanism. This nanohybrid proved toxic tocancer cellsin vitroand significantly reduced tumor volume in micebearing human xenograft BxPC-3 pancreatic tumors upon two-photonexcitation with the highly biocompatible 800 nm light
