    Abstract

    The synthesis and photophysical properties of 1 and 2, two Ru(II)-polypyridyl based-1,8-naphthalimide Troger’s bases, are described; these were found to stabilize double stranded DNA, undergo rapid cellular uptake, displaying good luminescence without affecting cell viability even after 24 hours of incubation.
