Compounds capable of inhibiting the dopamine transporter protein (DAT) that can be conjugated to cadmium selenide/zinc sulfide/core shell nanocrystals may be used to image the location and distribution of the DAT in neuronal cell membranes. This letter describes the synthesis of biotinylated analogs of the DAT antagonists GBR 12909 and GBR 12935 that can be attached to streptavidin coated cadmium selenide/zinc sulfide/core shell nanocrystals.
