A hybrid nanosystem for the oxygen-independent generation of free radicals to kill cancer cells under hypoxic condition is described by Y. Xia et al. in their Communication (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201702898). Gold nanocages filled with a phase-change material are used to deliver a polymerization initiator to generate the free radicals upon irradiation by a near-infrared laser.
