Abstract

The synthesis, photophysics and biological investigation of fluorescent 4-amino-1,8-naphthalimide Tröger's bases (TB-1–TB-3) and a new Tröger's base p-cymene–Ru(II)–curcumin organometallic conjugate (TB–Ru–Cur) are described; these compounds showed fast cellular uptake and displayed good luminescence and cytotoxicity against cervical cancer cells.
