Brief description Despite carbon monoxide being regarded as the ”silent killer”, it is now established that this molecule has beneficial effects for a number of conditions and pathologies, including inflammation, organ transplant rejection, bacterial infection, acute liver failure and as an aid in cancer therapies. This project proposes to explore the photochemistry of rhenium-containing species to discover more efficient carbon monoxide delivery agents. By combining synthetic chemistry, photochemistry and cellular biology it is anticipated that this multidisciplinary research programme will advance the area of carbon monoxide therapies by preparing safer agents for the targeted and controlled delivery of carbon monoxide.
