The pH-influenced PET processes between pyronine and different heterocycles.


The OFF-ON and ON-OFF type pH probes based on rosamine were designed by using the relative electron densities between pyronine and various linked heterocycles. Probe 1a with an indole-pyronine skeleton gave an OFF-ON pH response (pKa = 1.41) with decreasing pH, and the relative fluorescence intensity increased 15-fold, while probe 1b with an imidazole… (More)
