A Water-Soluble, Two-Photon Probe for Imaging Endogenous Hypochlorous Acid in Live Tissue.

Detection of hypochlorous acid (HClO) in the living system may help to uncover its essential biological functions. However, current imaging agents suffer from poor water solubility that limit their live-tissue applications. Here, a water-soluble probe (NNH) is devised through innovative hydrazone modification of 1,8-naphthalimide at 3' position. NNH was… CONTINUE READING
