A new class of BODIPY-based oxime ester photo-uncaging group was designed to release carboxylic acids. The mechanism and kinetics of the photo-uncaging procedure were studied. Further, we constructed a photo-uncaging drug delivery system to release valproic acid (VPA), which can inhibit the histone deacetylases and induce apoptosis in tumor cells.
