© 2017 American Chemical Society. Tin(IV) catalysis allows isolation of a boron dipyrromethene derivative bearing a solitary strap around the boron center. The conditions favor internal cyclization without contamination by side products and provide high yields of product in good purity. A phenolate-based strap imposes chirality and causes geometrical distortion of the dipyrrin. Relatively strong fluorescence is observed for single crystals, evaporated films, and adsorbed layers. Single-crystal absorption and emission spectra resemble those observed from solution with contributions from a dimer.
