Phosphorescent imaging of living cellsusing a cyclometalated iridium(III) complex
A cell permeable cyclometalated iridium(III) complex has been developed as a phosphorescent probe for cell imaging. The iridium(III) solvato complex [Ir(phq)2(H2O]2)] preferentially stains the cytoplasm of both live and dead cells with a bright luminescence. © 2013 Ma et al.
