One-Pot Synthesis of a Mono-O,B,N-strapped BODIPY Derivative Displaying Bright Fluorescence in the Solid State.

Tin(IV) catalysis allows isolation of a boron dipyrromethene derivative bearing a solitary strap around the boron center. The conditions favor internal cyclization without contamination by side products and provide high yields of product in good purity. A phenolate-based strap imposes chirality and causes geometrical distortion of the dipyrrin. Relatively… CONTINUE READING
