A rhodamine derivative as a “lock” and SCN as a “key”: visible light excitable SCN sensing in living cells

Author affiliations

Abstract

A visible light excitable rhodamine based probe operates as a SCN selective fluorescent “turn-on” sensor for living cell imaging with a detection limit of 0.01 μM, which is much lower than the normal SCN level in the human body. A “lock” and “key” model has been proposed to explain the fluorescence enhancement of the rhodamine probe in the presence of SCN.
