A new series of novel (C∧N∧N) cyclometalated gold(III) complexes have been characterized for their structural and spectroscopic properties. The anticancer activities of the compounds have been studied in vitro, and their reactivity with model biomolecules has been elucidated by mass spectrometry techniques, evidencing an unexpected preference for binding to nucleic acids with respect to proteins and amino acids.
