Non-toxic and stable photoactivatable platinum compounds, which can be activated by visible light to toxic anticancer drugs, could strongly reduce the side-effects shown by cisplatin by providing site-specific cancer treatment. In this thesis, the synthesis and characterisation of novel photoactive Pt amine compounds, which can be converted into reactive Pt species by visible light irradiation, are presented and their potential as photoactivatable prodrugs investigated.
