New 8-amino-BODIPY derivatives: surpassing laser dyes at blue-edge wavelengths.


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)
