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.
