Fifteen rhenium(I) tricarbonyl complexes bearing water-soluble phosphines were synthesized and characterized. Detailed photophysical studies on these compounds reveal that they undergo photosubstitution reactions and are photoluminescent in a manner that depends on the nature of the axial phosphine ligand. On the basis of their photophysical properties, these complexes were evaluated as photoactivated anticancer agents in cervical and ovarian cancer cell lines.
