Biocontrol traits of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), in terms of single and mixed species inoculum, against the root knot nematode Meloidogyne incongita in Impatiens balsamina L., were examined with and without mineral fertilization in a greenhouse pot experiment. At harvest, 60 days after sowing, general plant growth parameters and plant defense(More)
The structural, electronic and photophysical properties of three new asymmetric, highly fluorescent difluoroborondipyrromethene (BODIPY) dyes, bearing an amino or an acetamido group at position 3 of the chromophoric core, have been studied in different apolar, polar and polar/protic solvents. The presence of the 3-amido group extents the delocalization of(More)
The development of highly efficient and stable blue-emitting dyes to overcome some of the most important shortcomings of available chromophores is of great technological importance for modern optical, analytical, electronic, and biological applications. Here, we report the design, synthesis and characterization of new tailor-made BODIPY dyes with efficient(More)
Highly emitting 8-propargylaminoBODIPY (8-PAB) 2 was prepared in 94% yield. Unlike any other BODIPY structure hitherto described in the literature, 2 displays efficient emission in the blue region of the visible spectrum with a fluorescence quantum yield up to 0.94 and high laser efficiency (35%) at 483 nm.
The role of the amino group twisting ability in the BODIPY photophysics for nonsterically hindered and constrained molecular structures was studied. When a coplanar disposition of the amino and the BODIPY core is feasible, a hemicyanine-like delocalized π-system gives rise to novel blue and efficient BODIPY laser dyes. The key role of such rotamer is(More)
Eleven formyl-containing BODIPY dyes were prepared by means of either the Liebeskind-Srogl cross-coupling reaction or the Vilsmeier reaction. These dyes were used as components in the Passerini reaction to give highly substituted BODIPY dyes. A joined spectroscopic and theoretical characterization of the synthesized compounds was conducted to unravel the(More)
Linking amino and hydroxycoumarins to BODIPYs through the amino or hydroxyl group lets the easy construction of unprecedented photostable coumarin-BODIPY hybrids with broadened and enhanced absorption in the UV spectral region, and outstanding wavelength-tunable laser action within the green-to-red spectral region (∼520-680 nm). These laser dyes allow the(More)
BODIPY laser dyes constitute a fascinating topic of research in modern photochemistry due to the large variety of options its chromophore offers, which is ready available for a multitude of synthetic routes. Indeed, in the literature one can find a huge battery of compounds based on the indacene core. The possibility of modulating the spectroscopic(More)
Herein, we report the synthesis of polyfunctional BODIPY building blocks suitable to be subjected to several reaction sequences with complete chemoselectivity, thereby allowing the preparation of complex BODIPY derivatives in a versatile and programmable manner. The reactions included the Liebeskind-Srogl cross-coupling reaction (LSCC), nucleophilic(More)
The photophysical properties of multichromophoric dyes with borondipyrromethene (BODIPY) and poly- p-phenylene (di- p-phenylene and tri- p-phenylene) groups in the same molecule are studied in detail. The excitation of the polyphenylene moiety in the UV region leads to a strong visible fluorescent emission of the BODIPY chromophore, via intramolecular(More)
