Synthesis and properties of a series of carboranyl-BODIPYs
© 2015 Elsevier B.V. A series of four BODIPYs containing one or two ortho- or para-carborane clusters were synthesized using palladium(0)-catalyzed Suzuki cross-coupling or nucleophilic substitution reactions, at the 2,6- or the 8-positions of halogenated boron dipyrromethenes (BODIPYs). The spectroscopic, structural (including one X-ray) and in vitro BBB permeability of the BODIPYs using hCMEC/D3 brain endothelial cells were investigated.
