Positron emission tomography (PET) is a powerful technique for imaging biological pathways in vivo, particularly those that are key targets in disease processes. In contrast, fluorescence imaging has demonstrated to be a superior method for image-guided surgery, such as tumor removal. Although the integration of PET and optical imaging could provide an(More)
The interaction of the trinuclear mercury(II) complex [(o-C(6)F(4)Hg)(3)] (1) and pyrene leads to the formation of the 1:1 adduct 1.pyrene. The crystal structure of this adduct reveals the existence of supramolecular stacks in which molecules of 1 and molecules of pyrene alternate along the infinite chains. Steady-state and time-resolved photoluminescence(More)
The reaction of [Li(THF)(4)][1,8-mu-(Mes(2)B)C(10)H(6)] with HgCl(2) affords [1,1'-(Hg)-[8-(Mes(2)B)C(10)H(6)](2)] () or [1-(ClHg)-8-(Mes(2)B)C(10)H(6)] (), depending on the stoichiometry of the reagents. These two new compounds have been characterized by (1)H, (13)C, (11)B and (199)Hg NMR, elemental analysis and X-ray crystallography. The cyclic(More)
