Near-IR emitting lanthanide chelates are of increasing interest as biological imaging agents as a consequence of the transparency of biological tissue to near-IR radiations coupled with the fact that low energy absorbing chromophores can be used to sensitise near-IR lanthanide based emission. Metal complexes containing polypyridine ligands have low energy ³MLCT states suitable for populating the emissive states of near-IR emitting lanthanide ions. This thesis describes the synthesis and photophysical properties of a series of kinetically stable lanthanide complexes covalently linked to transition metal complexes.
