With the emerging interest in optical in vivo imaging, there is an increasing demand of photostable near-infrared (NIR) dyes. Herein we report the rational design of an amine tricarbocyanine structure with improved photostability (CyNA) and its combinatorial derivatization to render CyNA-414 as a NIR-fluorescent dye with stronger emission intensity and higher photostability than the NIR standard IndoCyanine Green (ICG). © 2010 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
