Our work on Twisted Intramolecular Charge Shuttle (TICS) has been featured in SUTD Research News and reported in various media, such as:
Figure 1. (a) Schematic illustration of the twisted intramolecular charge shuttle (TICS) mechanisms; “D” and “A” denote electron-donating and electron-accepting fragments, respectively. (b) Reaction mechanism of a TICS based GSH fluorescent probe, and confocal microscope images of HeLa cells stained with the probe and Hoechst 33342 (a nucleus stain with blue emissions). No red emissions were observed in cells that were pre-treated with 1 mM NMM to remove GSH, while intense red fluorescence was present in cells with GSH. Scale bar = 20 μm.
