BODIPY–BODIPY dyad: assessing the potential as a viscometer for molecular and ionic liquids

Author affiliations

Abstract

A symmetrical BODIPY–BODIPY dyad with a diyne linker was prepared in two steps; the lifetime decay of this rotor appeared to correlate with the viscosity of the media, thus making this dyad a suitable small molecule viscometer for molecular solvents. The potential of using the rotor to probe the viscosity of ionic liquids was also investigated.
