Productive Manipulation of Cyanine Dye -Networks. Academic Article uri icon


  • Polymethine bridges in cyanine dyes may be constrained by setting them into edge-fused ring systems, or extended by conjugation with carefully chosen heterocycles. Recent studies have shown that modifications like these can give significantly brighter dyes with red-shifted absorbance and emission maxima.
