Abstract

A new conjugated polyelectrolyte containing tetraphenylethene units in the backbone is synthesized and characterized. This polyelectrolyte is water-soluble and exhibits aggregation-induced emission (AIE) behavior. It is biocompatible and can be directly used in conventional and fluorescence lifetime imaging of mouse neuroblastoma neuro-2A cells, providing useful information of cellular morphology and intracellular aggregation or motion. © 2018 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
