    Abstract
    Sonodynamic therapy , as a novel non-invasive strategy for eliminating tumor, has the advantages of deeper tissue penetration, fewer side effects, and better patient compliance, compared with photodynamic therapy. In SDT, ultrasound was used to activate sonosensitizer to produce cytotoxic reactive oxygen species , induce the collapse of vacuoles in solution, and bring about irreversible damage to cancer cells. In recent years, much effort has been devoted to developing highly efficient sonosensitizers which can efficiently generate ROS. However, the traditional organic...
