A new class of fluorescent metal complex with “ballerina”-like geometry is described. When functionalized with biotin (green) and a dye (orange/red), the zinc(II) complex can be used to visualize interactions with avidin. Metal complexes that can exhibit selective fluorescence changes in response to a macromolecular binding event have great potential for imaging applications.
