Synthesis of 3,5-diaryl-4,4-difluoro-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene (BODIPY (R)) dyes Academic Article uri icon


  • 2-Aryl pyrroles 2 were formed via Suzuki coupling of arylboronic acids to N-BOC protected 2-bromopyrrole. These pyrroles were used to produce 3,5-diaryl BODIPY dyes 1 having red-shifted fluorescence maxima relative to comparable alkyl-substituted systems. Absorption and fluorescence spectra of the compounds 1 are discussed.
