A borane–bithiophene–BODIPY triad: intriguing tricolor emission and selective fluorescence response towards fluoride ions

Author affiliations

Abstract

The structure and photophysical properties of a new triad (borane–bithiophene–BODIPY) 1 have been investigated. Triad 1 exhibits unprecedented tricolour emission when excited at the borane centred high energy absorption band and also acts as a selective fluorescent and colorimetric sensor for fluoride ions with ratiometric response. The experimental results are supported by computational studies.
