Abstract
Spectroscopic probes may be described as the reagents that can react with analytes (targets), accompanied by the changes of their spectroscopic (e.g., chromogenic, fluorescent or chemiluminescent) properties, and based on such changes the analytes could thus be determined. Our research group has been engaged in this field for more than two decades, and several new spectroscopic probes and sensing/labeling methods for biologically active species have been developed by virtue of suitable chemical functional reactions. These include: (1) water-soluble polymeric chromogenic reagents; (2) triazine-based spectroscopic labeling probes; (3) chemiluminescent traps for singlet oxygen; (4) polarity- and viscosity-sensitive fluorescent probes; (5) rhodamine-based spectroscopic probes; (6) site-specific labeling and local structure analysis of proteins, etc. In this talk, special focus will be on our recent researches on the spectroscopic probes and imaging analysis for some enzymes reactive oxygen species.
