Copper-cysteamine and methods of use
Structure and luminescence properties of a new Cu-Cyteamine (Cu-Cy) crystal material are provided. The crystal structure of the Cu-Cy is determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. It is found that the compound crystallizes in the monoclinic space group C2/c and cell parameters are a=7.5510(4) Ã¢â€žÂ«, b=16.9848(7) Ã¢â€žÂ«, c=7.8364(4) Ã¢â€žÂ«, ÃŽÂ²=104.798(3)Ã‚Â°. The new Cu-Cy crystal material of the invention is also useful for treatment of cancer.
