Bioorthogonal uncaging of a structurally diverse selection of cytotoxic precursors is achieved by heterogeneous gold catalysis, allowing safe activation of therapeutics by nonbiological chemical stimuli. In their Communication (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201705609), J. Santamaría and A. Unciti-Broceta et al. report gold-catalyzed bioorthogonal uncaging of clinically approved anticancer drugs in cancer cell culture, and the first intracranial activation of a bioorthogonal probe in a zebrafish.
