A novel Bodipy-Dipyrrin fluorescent probe: Synthesis and recognition behaviour towards Fe (II) and Zn (II) (2012)
Journal Article
Kursunlu, A. N., Guler, E., Ucan, H. I., & Boyle, R. W. (2012). A novel Bodipy-Dipyrrin fluorescent probe: Synthesis and recognition behaviour towards Fe (II) and Zn (II). Dyes and pigments : an international journal, 94(3), 496-502. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.dyepig.2012.02.006

We present the design, synthesis, characterization and spectral studies for a new Zn (II) and Fe (II) selective fluorescent probe, 4,4-Difluoro-8-{3-[(4-phenoxy-dipyrromethene)propoxy]}-4-bora-3a,4a-diazaindacene (DPYBODPY). DPBODPY consists of a ter... Read More

Orthogonally bifunctionalised polyacrylamide nanoparticles: a support for the assembly of multifunctional nanodevices (2012)
Journal Article
Giuntini, F., Dumoulin, F., Daly, R., Ahsen, V., Scanlan, E. M., Lavado, A. S. P., …Boyle, R. W. (2012). Orthogonally bifunctionalised polyacrylamide nanoparticles: a support for the assembly of multifunctional nanodevices. Nanoscale, 4(6), 2034-2045. https://doi.org/10.1039/c2nr11947a

Polyacrylamide nanoparticles bearing two orthogonal reactive functionalities were prepared by reverse microemulsion polymerisation. Water-soluble photosensitisers and peptide or carbohydrate moieties were sequentially attached to the new nanospecies... Read More
