Abstract

We report a two-photon fluorescent probe (AHg1) that can be excited by 780 nm femto-second pulses, shows high photostability and negligible toxicity, and can visualize the site of Hg2+ accumulation, but can also estimate trace amounts of mercury ions in fresh fish organs by two-photon microscopy.
