Niyazi, Hakan; Hall, James P; O'Sullivan, Kyra; Winter, Graeme; Sorensen, Thomas; Kelly, John M; Cardin, Christine J.;

The ruthenium complex [Ru(phen)2(dppz)] (where phen is a phenanthroline and dppz a dipyridyl–phenazine ligand) is\ud known as a ‘light switch’ complex because its luminescence in solution is significantly enhanced in the presence of DNA. This property is poised to serve... View more
