Design of bis-spiropyran ligands as dipolar molecule receptors and application to in vivo glutathione fluorescent probes.


Despite considerable efforts toward the development of various sophisticated spiropyrans for metal ion sensing, less attention has been paid to organic molecule sensing. One of the major difficulties for detection of organic molecules using a spiropyran is the weak and nonspecific interaction between the spiropyran and the target. Here, we report the… (More)
