Mono- and di-AcO substituted BODIPYs (1 and 2) were synthesized from TM-BDP. The structures of 1 and 2 were supported by single crystal X-ray analysis. Both 1 and 2 possess a large absorption coefficient, high fluorescence quantum yield, and high light stability. Compound 2 has much improved water solubility which is highly desirable for biological applications. Theoretical calculation supports our observations in X-ray analysis, absorption, and cyclic voltammetry.
