Abstract

A number of oxidovanadium(IV) complexes have been reported to display anticancer activity. A theranostic approach, based on the simultaneous observation of both the effect of oxidovanadium(IV) complexes on cell viability and the disclosure of their intracellular fate, is possible by using oxidovanadium(IV) complexes functionalized with fluorescent ligands. In the present study we accomplished the characterization of six oxidovanadium(IV) complexes in conditions close to those employed for in vitro administration. In particular, we investigated the light harvesting properties of such complexes in the presence of a dimethylsulphoxide/aqueous buffer mixture, andwe found that one complex exhibits a quantum yield suitable for confocal microscopy investigations. EPR investigations in the same conditions provide information about the presence of ligands' substitution processes. Finally, the electrochemical properties of all complexes were determined by cyclic voltammetry. The overall results show that these complexes exhibit an average stability in solution; EPR data confirm that DMSO enter the first coordination sphere of oxidovanadium(IV) and suggest the occurrence of partial ligand substitution in the dimethylsulphoxide/aqueous buffer mixture.
