Abstract

We synthesized novel borate antitumor drugs sourced from starch-borate-graphene oxide (SBG) nanocomposites. In vitro results suggest that SBG from the molar ratio of nstarch:nborate:nGO at 2:1:1 exhibits excellent biocompatibility with normal human cells (>90% cell viability), but are highly toxic against cancer cells (<20% cell viability).
