A cell-permeable ytterbium complex shows reversible binding with Hg2+ in aqueous solution and in vitroby off-on visible and NIR emission. The fast response and 150 nM sensitivity of Hg2+ detection is based upon FRET and the lanthanide antenna effect. The reversible Hg2+ detection can be performed in vitro, and the binding mechanism is suggested by NMR employing the motif structure in a La complex and by DFT calculations.
