Mitochondrial Luminophore Small Molecule (Tool Compound)

Invented by Dr Michael (Mike) Coogan at Lancaster University

Info

Catalogue Number 152785
Type Luminophore
Relevance 3-Chloromethylpyridyl bipyridine fac-tricarbonyl rhenium is a mitochondrion-selective metal-to-ligand charge transfer rhenium dye, that has been designed for a specific biological target. It has the advantage of a long lifetime and a large Stokes shift, which makes it an attractive candidates for biological imaging.
Molecular Formula Re(CO)3(bpy)(Py-3-CH2Cl)] PF6
lUPAC 3-Chloromethylpyridyl bipyridine fac-tricarbonyl rhenium
Molecular Weight (g/mol) 554
Research Area Cell Type or Organelle Marker
Storage Hydrolytically stable under mild conditions for many hours
Notes 3-Chloromethylpyridyl bipyridine fac-tricarbonyl rhenium showed the typical photophysical properties of a cationic rhenium tricarbonyl bisimine; excitation at λmax 364 nm, emission at λmax 551 nm and a fluorescence lifetime of t = 131 ns.
