Recent advances in the application of BODIPY in bioimaging and chemosensing
Considering the availability of a vast array of fluorescence-based bioimaging agents, BODIPY probes are the cynosure of current times and fluorophores worthy of great admiration and attention owing to the promise that they offer in advancing the otherwise nascent, non-invasive diagnostic tool of clinicians: bioimaging. The identification and quantification of analytes in solutions, in vitro or in vivo using BODIPY probes have been shown with remarkable success. In this review, we have surveyed very representative and recent (2014 onwards) developments in the application of BODIPY probes to bioimaging and this should be a useful update to existing reviews on this topic.
