Electrochemical and electrogenerated chemiluminescence studies of the BODIPY dyes
MetadataShow full item record
Electrochemical and electrogenerated chemiluminescence properties of the BODIPY (boron dipyrromethene) dyes are presented. Some specific features of the BODIPY dyes are obtained and described in the current dissertation. Separation of around 1.0-1.2 V is noticed between two oxidation and reduction waves for one center which is very different from 0.5 V seen for the polycyclic hydrocarbons. Cathodic and anodic stability is shown to depend upon absence or presence of certain degree of substitution. Different ways of electrochemical dimerization are explored and compared with the chemical dimerization. Photophysical and electrochemical properties of monomer, chemically synthesized dimer, trimer and polymer are described and the characteristic features determined.
