Intracellular thermometry at the microscopic level is currently a hot topic. Herein we describe a small molecule fluorescent thermometer targeting mitochondria (Mito thermo yellow). Mito thermo yellow successfully demonstrates the ability to monitor the intracellular temperature gradient, generated by exogenous heating, in various cells. This journal is
