A long lifetime switch-on iridium(III) chemosensor for the visualization of cysteine in live zebrafish
Department of Chemistry
A long lifetime iridium(III) complex chemosensor 1 for cysteine detection has been synthesized. The luminescence signal of 1 could be recognized in strongly fluorescent media through time-resolved emission spectroscopy (TRES). The detection of cysteine in a living zebrafish was demonstrated.
