摘要：Curcuminoids (CURs), a series of derivatives in turmeric (Curcuma longa), are commonly discovered to control the deterioration of cancers. However, the physiochemical properties and the original side effects of many CURs complexes put barriers in their medical applications. To address them, the investigation of metal-based complexes with CURs is in progress. The complexes were summarized according to articles in recent years. The results showed that the complexes improved the physicochemical properties or therapeutic performances compared with pure CURs. Further, it is possible for the novel complexes to be applied in chemical detecting, paramagnetic-luminescent and bio-imaging fields. Therefore, the formation of the metal-based CURs complexes (MBCCs) is beneficial for the development of CURs especially in medical fields.
