Pyridine-Substituted BODIPY as Fluorescent Probe for Hg2+

Authors


Abstract

Dialkynylated BODIPYs bearing pyridine or dibutylaniline substituents have been synthesized, and their photophyisical properties in the presence of different metal ions have been studied. 4-Pyridyl substitution gives a highly selective fluorescence probe for HgII ions.
