2011_02/2011Water-Soluble and Biocompatible Cyclometalated Iridium(III) Complexes: Synthesis, Luminescence and Sensing Application (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 2/2011)

The cover picture shows the structures of two novel water-soluble cyclometalated iridium(III) complexes with good water solubility, high quantum efficiency and biocompatibility. Preliminary experiments of cell viability and sensing of lectin show that iridium(III) complexes with appended sugar groups provide advantages of reducing the toxicity and of improving the solubility in water, and open up the possibility of molecular targeting of carbohydrate-binding domains in cells and tissues. Details are discussed in the Short Communication by M.-J. Li, G.-N. Chen et al. on p. 197.
