Phosphorescent chemosensors based on heavy-metal complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Recently, the use of phosphorescent heavy-metal complexes as chemosensors has attracted increasing interest due to their advantageous photophysical properties. This critical review focuses on the design principles and the recent development of phosphorescent chemosensors for metal cations, anions, pH, oxygen, volatile organic compounds and biomolecules based on some heavy-metal complexes (such as Pt(II)-, Ru(II)-, Re(I)-, Ir(III)-, Cu(I)-, Au(I)- and Os(II)-based complexes), in which the variation in phosphorescence signals induced by the interaction between heavy-metal complexes and analytes is utilized (217 references).
