Terpyridine/benzofurazan conjugation results in a new hybrid fluorophore of the colorimetric sensing ability for Fe2+ and fluorimetric sensing ability for XII group cations. The improved emission properties and cell imaging ability imply it is a suitable platform to construct a fluorescent sensor for metal imaging in biological systems.
