Diselenide-based probe for the selective imaging of hypochlorite in living cancer cells†
A non-traditional and robust probe skeleton was derivatized for chemosensing applications to investigate a potential novel mode of hypochlorite detection. The BDPP-DSe probe gave a ∼180-fold “turn-on” response to hypochlorite. Confocal fluorescence imaging demonstrated detection of hypochlorite in living cells and cell membrane permeability.
