Image Caption Dissociative biorthogonal reactions allow for chemical control of the release of bioactive agents and reporter probes.
Description The development of bioorthogonal chemical reactions-chemical reactions that can be conducted in living cells-has been one of the most significant areas of advancement in chemistry in recent years. Bioorthogonal reactions that join molecules together, such as "click chemistry," have created a revolution in biomedical research. However, there are fewer bioorthogonal reactions that can split molecules. Franzini and colleagues have developed a series of highly efficient chemical reactions, termed "dissociative bioorthogonal reactions", that do just that. These new reactions hold promise for enabling new targeted therapies and highly-sensitive diagnostic tools.
