A theoretical and experimental NMR study of BODIPY 493/503: difluoro{2-[1-(3,5-dimethyl-2H-pyrrol-2-ylidene-N)ethyl]-3,5-dimethyl-1H-pyrrolato-N}boron.


BODIPY 493/503 1 is a pentamethyl derivative of the BODIPY skeleton 2. There are many BODIPY derivatives with different substituents and even aza derivatives. Compound 1 is bright, green fluorescent dye with similar excitation and emission to fluorescein with several uses in biochemistry, for staining lipids, membranes and other lipophilic compounds… (More)
