Fluorescent organic nanoparticle formation in lysosomes for cancer cell recognition

Author affiliations

Abstract

We present a convenient method to prepare fluorophores 3- or 3,7-divinyl substituted 10H-phenothiazines and their protonation forms can aggregate to become fluorescent organic nanoparticles (FONs) with bright fluorescent spots in the lysosomes of cancer cells but not normal cells.
