Activation and Deprotection of F-BODIPYs using Boron Trihalides
Cameron, T. Stanley
MetadataShow full item record
The activation of F-BODIPYs with boron trihalides, followed by treatment with a nuclephile, effects facile substitution at boron; using water as the nucleophile promotes deprotective removal of the–BF2 moiety and thereby production of the corresponding 10 parent dipyrrin salt in quantitative yield under extremely mild conditions.
