A water-soluble bimetallic normal (“cold”) and radiochemical (“hot”) gallium–porphyrin–ruthenium–bipyridine complex (GaporRu-1) has been synthesized by microwave methodology in short reaction times with good (>85%) yields. 68GaporRu-1 is demonstrated to be a potential multimodal and functional bioprobe for positron emission tomography (PET), lysosome specific optical imaging, and photodynamic therapy.
