Abstract
Lead(II)–texaphyrins and the first discrete binuclear μ–oxo bismuth(III)–texaphyrin are reported. The latter was characterized via single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. Cell proliferation assays using the A2780 ovarian cancer cell line were used to determine the cytotoxicity of the complexes.
