I have a chance to brag, so I’m going to take it. I just published a Communication in JACS.
The basic idea is to use an an azide to disrupt the push-pull character of a known fluorophore, rendering it dark. Because the azide is photoconvertible to an electron donor (the amine), you can photoactivate fluorescence.
The motivation for designing photoactivatable fluorophores that emit many photon include super-resolution schemes (described here and here).
Anyway that’s all. Just wanted to talk about myself a little. Which is what a blog is for.
