Abstract

In this study, the synthesis of boron dipyrromethene dyes containing mono, bis-2-naphthyloxyhexyloxy and 4-(benzyloxy)phenoxyhexyloxy groups has been reported. Boron dipyrromethene dyes were synthesized from the mono, bis-benzaldehyde derivatives with 2,4-dimethylpyrrole in dichloromethane in the presence of trifluoroacetic, 2,3-dichloro-5,6-dicyano-p-benzoquinon, triethyl amine and boron trifluoride diethyl etherate, respectively. Electrochemical characterization of boron dipyrromethene dyes were carried out with voltammetric measurements. Electrochemical studies show that boron dipyrromethene dyes containing mono, bis-2-naphthyloxyhexyloxy and 4-(benzyloxy)phenoxyhexyloxy groups have reversible one reduction potentials unlike irreversible one oxidation potentials.
