Abstract

A unique cell-membrane-permeable europium complex has been developed as a probe for time-gated luminescence detection of singlet oxygen ( 1O2). Combined with the time-gated luminescence imaging technique, the probe was successfully used for investigating the time-dependent generation and distribution of 1O2 induced by the clinical drugs of photodynamic therapy in cancer cells.
