The research presented in this thesis focused on the investigation of platinum(II) and iridium(III) complexes in bacterial imaging. The use of the complexes as luminescent probes to image live bacteria has been demonstrated with different approaches including confocal or super-resolution microscopy and ion-nanoscopy, showing how structurally diverse metal complexes could readily penetrate the cell envelope of live bacteria, enabling the visualisation of different cellular sub-structures.
