Ever since the discovery of cisplatin by Rosenberg in the 1970’s metal complexes as anti-cancer drugs have become an increasing subject of research. Ruthenium as a substitute for the toxic platinum metal has received a lot of attention recently. Organometallic compounds such as arene ruthenium complexes are very versatile and have proven to be active against cancer cells. In order to exploit...
