The rate of aquation of a dinuclear platinum anticancer agent is altered in the presence of template DNA with enhancement of hydrolysis in the presence of single-stranded over double-stranded DNA, emphasising how the alteration of chemical properties of small molecules in the presence of large host interactions is also dependent on the conformation and nature of that host.
