Tailoring tripodal ligands for zinc sensing
New Journal of Chemistry
Zinc plays an important role in biological processes. It is implicated in many diseases, including those affecting the brain. Imaging zinc is becoming crucial to the elucidation of zinc concentration, distribution, kinetics and functions in cells and tissues. This review highlights recent advances in the development of picolylamine-based tripodal compounds as zinc sensors, especially our work in the field of sensing "invisible" Zn(II) using steady-state fluorescence, fluorescence lifetimes anddoi:10.1039/b710803f fatcat:yz6u7ynlrbb5lb5eab7o7w2enu
