A nanohybrid is assembled by ratiometrically co-loading Pt(iv) prodrugs and photosensitizers into layered double hydroxide nanoparticles. The nanohybrid shows synergistic cell-killing effects and is significantly active against the proliferation of cisplatin-resistant human cancer cells with nanomolar IC50 values. Profound mechanistic investigations confirm its action mode of combined chemo- and photodynamic therapy.
