Abstract

An unprecedented Au-Ag alkynyl-diphosphine aggregate, obtained via CO-reduction of a mixture of simple reagents, exhibits intense room-temperature phosphorescence free from O(2) quenching, and serves as an excellent phosphorescence dye suited for both one-and two-photon imaging in human stem cells.
