General description

Tris(2,2′-bipyridyl)dichlororuthenium(II) hexahydrate is a metal complex and is used as an luminescent dye. The metal complex in its ground state can be excited by visible light which leads to the formation of a spin-allowed excited state. This excited state undergoes radiationless deactivation very quickly to form spin-forbidden, long-lived luminescent excited state. It is used widely in electroluminescent devices.

Application

  • Used in the synthesis of hybrid catalysts which are used in oxidase based biosensors.
  • Used as a luminophore for multiplexed signalling in bio analysis.
  • Used in oxygen assesment in living cells.

Research in the Stephenson lab focuses upon the development of new chemical methods which enable the activation of chemical bonds under mild reaction conditions.

One major theme of research in the Yoon lab is the development of unique chemical transformations enabled by visible light photochemistry. A variety of transition metal photocatalysts responsive to visible light are known, and the Yoon lab has shown that their well understood photochemistry can be coupled to cycloadditions, arene oxidations, amine functionalizations, and thiol-ene reactions, among others.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
