"Turn-on" FRET-based luminescent probes containing iridium(iii) complexes for the detection of Cys and Hcy have been designed and synthesized. The relationship between the steric bulk of the probe and the corresponding emission intensity enhancement towards detection of Cys and Hcy has been studied.
