Thiophene-fused 1,10-phenanthroline toward far-red emitting conjugated polymer and its polymer dot: synthesis, properties and subcellar imaging

Abstract

We synthesized and characterized a new kind of far-red emitter based on conjugated block copolymer from fluorene, 4,7-di(thiophen-2-yl)benzo[c][1,2,5]thiadiazole and thiophene-fused 1,10-phenanthroline. Compact polymer dots (Pdots) that show intense fluorescence signals in the far-red and near-infrared region were formed by nanoprecipitation. The small particle size, high brightness, non-toxic feature, and the ability to specifically target subcellular structures make the Pdots promising probes for biological imaging.
