Abstract

Copper(II) bis-arginate $[Cu(L-arg)_2]$ $(NO_3)_2$(1) and [Cu(L-arg)(phen)-Cl]Cl (2) as mimics of the minor-groove-binding natural antibiotic netropsin show preferential binding to the AT-rich region of doublestranded DNA. The complexes with a d-d band near 600 nm display oxidative DNA cleavage activity on photoirradiation at UV-A light of 365 nm and at red light of 647.1 nm (Ar-Kr laser) in a metal-assisted photoexcitation process forming singlet oxygen $(^{1}O_2)$ species in a type-2 pathway.
