Proton transfer is one of the most important elementary reactions in chemistry and biology. The role of proton in the course of proton transfer, whether it is active or passive, has been the subject of intense investigations. Here we demonstrate...

The dynamics of the excited-state proton transfer (ESPT) in a cluster of 2-(2'-hydroxyphenyl)benzothiazole (HBT) and hydrogen-bonded water molecules was investigated by means of quantum chemical simulations. Two different enol ground-state structures of HBT interacting with the water cluster were chosen...

A new excited state intramolecular proton transfer chromophore of naphthalimide (NI) conjugated 2-(2-hydroxyphenyl) benzothiazole (HBT) was prepared which shows red shifted absorption and long-lived triplet excited states.

A new ratiometric fluorescence probe E1 based on an excited-state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT) mechanism for detection of hydrogen sulfide (H(2)S) is reported. E1 responds to H(2)S quickly and showed a 30-fold fluorescence enhancement in 2 minutes. Moreover, E1 can...

Two of the reporter enzymes most commonly used in studies of eukaryotic gene expression are chloramphenicol acetyl-transferase (CAT) and firefly luciferase (Luc). CAT has a half-life of about 50 h in mammalian cells, making it useful for transient transfection assays...
