imaging in the second near-infrared region (NIR-II) can penetrate tissue at centimeter depths
and obtain high fidelity of images. However, facile synthesis of small-molecule fluorescent photosensitizers for efficient NIR-II fluorescence imaging as well as photodynamic and photothermal
combinatorial therapies (PDT-PTT) is still a challenging
task. Herein, we reported a rational design and facile
synthesis protocol for a series of novel NIR-emissive zwitterionic luminogens with aggregation-induced emission (AIE) features for cancer
