In this study, the synthesis of novel Monostyryl and Distyryl boron dipyrromethene dyes containing 4-((2-hydroxyethyl)(methyl)amino) group to determine neuroprotective potential has been reported for the first time. They were synthesized starting from BODIPY dye 1. Their inhibitory properties against Acetylcholinesterase/Butyrylcholinesterase (AChE/BuChE) and tyrosinase (Tyr) were evaluated according to Ingkaninan's and Masuda's methods and kinetic analysis of compounds was done using LineweaverBurk and Dixon plots.
