Abstract

The synthesis of a new pyrene-containing Fischer carbene complex is described. The complex has a broad absorbance spectrum between 300 and 400 nm and, on excitation at 345 nm in CH2Cl2 solution, emission is observed at 395 and 415 nm. Emission is also observed in PBS buffer, but in this case the resulting spectra are much broader. Confocal and fluorescence lifetime imaging indicate that emission occurs on treating HeLa cells with the complex and co-localisation studies demonstrate that this is from the mitochondria and lipid-rich regions of the cell.
