BODIPY Derivatives: Synthesis and Evaluation of Their Optical Properties†
AbstractThree 3-difluoroborodipyrromethene (BODIPY) derivatives functionalized at the meso and 2 positions were synthesized with 22–59% yield. The compounds were characterized by the usual spectroscopic techniques and a photophysical study was also undertaken. The BODIPY derivatives presented absorption bands in the 494–512 nm range and were also emissive with fluorescence bands in the 512–514 nm interval. A preliminary study on the sensing ability of a BODIPY derivative functionalized at position 2 with a benzimidazole was carried out in acetonitrile and acetonitrile/water (75:25) solutions in the presence of anions and cations, with environmental, biomedical, and analytical relevance. A highly selective response was obtained for Hg2+ and Fe3+ in acetonitrile/water solution.
