Tool Details

  • Tool name: Platinum trimethyl Luminophore Small Molecule (Tool Compound)
  • Molecular formula: PtMe3(bpy)S-C6H4-CO2Me
  • Tool type: Small molecules
  • Tool sub-type: Luminophore
  • Molecular weight of the target: 579
  • Description: PtMe3(bpy)S-C6H4-CO2Me is air- and water stable, resistant to ligand substitution of the coordinated thiolate under physiological conditions, and with visible excitation, a Stokes shift of over 200 nm and red emission is an ideal candidate for fluorescence imaging experiments. PtMe3(bpy)S-C6H4-CO2Me is capable of permeating the cytoplasm and is not retained in the plasma membrane.
