Anion sensing with a Lewis acidic BODIPY-antimony( v ) derivative Academic Article uri icon


  • We describe the synthesis of a BODIPY dye substituted with a Lewis acidic antimony(v) moiety. This compound, which has been fully characterized, shows a high affinity for small anions including fluoride and cyanide, the complexation of which elicits a fluorescence turn-on response.
