Aldehyde functionalized Ru(bpy)3 derivative bearing a short (C3) spacer arm.


Useful label for fluorescence and electrochemiluminescence detection
Reacts with primary and secondary amine-containing molecules to form Schiff bases
Reacts towards hydrazine and especially hydrazide derivatives to create a hydrazone linkage, relatively more stable than the easily reversible Schiff base bond
In both cases reductive amination with sodium cyanoborohydride reduces the double bond to form a stable covalent linkage
