Abstract

Clickable pyrrolopyrrole cyanine (PPCy) dyes were synthesized by incorporating an alkyne moiety, followed by click reaction with azide-functionalized molecules of different polarities. The clickable dyes are readily amenable to labelling diverse molecules and exhibit exceptionally high photostabilities and impressive fluorescence quantum yields.
