On page 771, Bin Liu, Ben Zhong Tang, and co-workers report the synthesis of 2-(2,6-bis((E)-4-(phenyl(4′-(1,2,2-triphenylvinyl)-[1,1′-biphenyl]-4-yl)amino)styryl)-4Hpyran-4-ylidene)malononitrile (TPE-TPA-DCM), which has an aggregation-induced emission (AIE) feature. Further formulation of TPE-TPA-DCM using bovine serum albumin (BSA) as the polymer matrix allows for successful in vitro and in vivo farred/near-infrared (FR/NIR) bioimaging.
