Abstract

A long lifetime iridium(iii) complex chemosensor 1 for cysteine detection has been synthesized. The luminescence signal of 1 could be recognized in strongly fluorescent media through time-resolved emission spectroscopy (TRES). The detection of cysteine in a living zebrafish was demonstrated.
