It is still a challenge that organotin(IV) carboxylate complexes with high-performance two-photon activity for cancer therapy. At present work, two novel organotin carboxylate complexes LSn1 and LSn2, containing coumarin moiety, were rationally designed for two-photon fluorescent imaging and anticancer purpose. The complexes possessed large two-photon action cross-sections and high quantum yields. Living cells evaluation revealed that complexes LSn1 and LSn2 exhibited good biocompatibility and deep-tissue penetration over femtosecond laser with wavelength of 840 nm. Furthermore, the antitumor active and as well as possible mechanism of complexes LSn1 and LSn2 have been investigated systematically. The results indicated that complexes LSn1 and LSn2 could induce apoptotic cell death through a mitochondrial dysfunction and ROS elevation pathway. The present work provides a strategy for rationally designing organotin(IV) carboxylate complexes with two-photon activity and antitumor activity. © 2017 American Chemical Society.

Fluorescent imaging of cysteine (Cys) and homocysteine (Hcy) is crucial to understand sulphur metabolism in living cells. Whereas two-photon active cyclometalated Ir(III) complex for detecting Cys/Hcy has been rarely reported. Herein, two novel cyclometalated iridium (III) complexes Ir1-Ir2 with different electron-donor were designed, synthesized and fully characterized as well as confirmed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis, which could selectively react with Cys/Hcy, accompanying with an obvious one- and two-photon fluorescence enhancement in vitro. The mechanism for sensing Cys/Hcy was further analyzed in detail by mass spectra and time-dependent density functional theory calculations. It was found that Ir2, bearing ester group, exhibited higher performance on the selective detection of Cys and Hcy compared to Ir1. Notably, the two-photon action cross-section value in the near-infrared region (∼800 nm) of Ir2 is significantly enhanced upon the addition of Cys/Hcy. Further application to cellular imaging indicated that Ir2 is membrane permeable and capable of monitoring the changes of intracellular mitochondrial Cys/Hcy. These results support that such two-photon active complexes might provide a promising platform for the detection of mitochondrial Cys/Hcy in living biological systems. © 2017

It is still a challenge to obtain two-photon excited fluorescent bioimaging probes with intense emission, high photo-stability and low cytotoxicity. In the present work, four Zn(ii)-coordinated complexes (1-4) constructed from two novel D-A and D-π-A ligands (L1 and L2) are investigated both experimentally and theoretically, aiming to explore efficient two-photon probes for bioimaging. Molecular geometry optimization used for theoretical calculations is achieved using the crystallographic data. Notably, the results indicate that complexes 1 and 2 display enhanced two-photon absorption (2PA) cross sections compared to their corresponding D-A ligand (L1). Furthermore, it was found that complex 1 has the advantages of moderate 2PA cross section in the near-infrared region, longer fluorescence lifetime, higher quantum yield, good biocompatibility and enhanced two-photon excited fluorescence. Therefore, complex 1 is evaluated as a bioimaging probe for in vitro imaging of HepG2 cells, in which it is observed under a two-photon scanning microscope that complex 1 exhibits effective co-staining with endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and nuclear membrane; as well as for in vivo imaging of zebrafish larva, in which it is observed that complex 1 exhibits specificity in the intestinal system. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2015.

System Identification for linear systems and models is a well established and mature topic. Identifying nonlinear models is a much more rich and demanding problem area. In this presentation some major approaches and concepts for that are outlined.
