Chemical communications : Chem comm / the Royal Society of Chemistry, 54(57), 7952-7954. https://doi.org/10.1039/c8cc03897j

A theranostic conjugate for use as a positron emission tomography (PET) radiotracer and as a photosensitiser for photodynamic therapy (PDT) has been synthesised. A water-soluble porphyrin was coupled with the bifunctional chelate, H4Dpaa.ga. This con... Read More

A 18F radiolabelled Zn(ii) sensing fluorescent probe (2018)
Journal Article
Price, T. W., Firth, G., Eling, C. J., Kinnon, M., Long, N. J., Sturge, J., & Stasiuk, G. J. (2018). A 18F radiolabelled Zn(ii) sensing fluorescent probe. Chemical communications : Chem comm / the Royal Society of Chemistry, 54(26), 3227-3230. https://doi.org/10.1039/c8cc00687c

A selective fluorescent probe for Zn(ii), AQA-F, has been synthesized. AQA-F exhibits a ratiometric shift in emission of up to 80 nm upon binding Zn(ii) ([AQA-F] = 0.1 mM, [Zn(ii)Cl 2 ] = 0-300 μM). An enhancement of quantum yield from Φ = 4.2% to Φ... Read More
