© 2015 The Royal Society of Chemistry. 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 n starch :n borate :n GO at 2:1:1 exhibits excellent biocompatibility with normal human cells ( > 90% cell viability), but are highly toxic against cancer cells ( < 20% cell viability).
