Target-triggered deprotonation of 6-hydroxyindole-based BODIPY: specially switch on NIR fluorescence upon selectively binding to Zn2+

Author affiliations

Abstract

Based on 6-hydroxyindole BODIPY with a Schiff-base structure, NIR fluorescence with impressively high selectivity is triggered by deprotonation of the phenol group upon binding with Zn2+ due to the chelation-enhanced fluorescence effect, thus realizing a promising application in bioimaging of Zn2+.
