As part of our continuing investigations into the BOPHY fluorophore, we have started to explore the cyanation of derivatives both with and without ferrocene. Upon functionalization of BOPHY with cyanide, however, extrusion of a BF2 unit is observed, resulting in a “half-BOPHY” compound, which exhibits reduced emission. The introduction of a CN unit reduces the basicity of the bridging hydrazine. More information can be found in the Full Paper by V. N. Nemykin et al. (DOI: 10.1002/chem.201702597).
