The synthesis of boron-pyridyl-imino-isoindoline dyes, a novel type of BODIPY analogue, involves a facile and scalable two-step reaction. Broad envelopes of intense vibrational bands are observed for the main spectral bands in the absorption and emission spectra. High fluorescence quantum yields are obtained in solution, with significant intensity also observed in the solid-state.
