Glow and tell: The study of enzymatic nucleoside transport suffers for lack of optical probes that can be tracked noninvasively. Presented here are nucleoside analogues in which emissive, cyclometalated iridium(III) complexes are “clicked” to C-1 of deoxyribose in place of canonical nucleobases (see picture). The resulting complexes show visible luminescence at room temperature and 77 K with microsecond-length triplet lifetimes.
