Novel Bodipy decorated triazine conjugates were successfully designed and synthesized by the click reaction of azido functionalized di-styryl Bodipys with propargyl alkoxide substituted triazine. The identities of newly synthesized compounds were confirmed by using H-1 and C-13 NMR spectroscopies. The molecular structure of propargyl alkoxide substituted triazine was also determined by X-ray crystallography. The photophysical (fluorescence lifetime and fluorescence quantum yield) and photochemical (the singlet oxygen generation capabilities and appropriate photo degradation by light irradiation) properties of Bodipy-triazine conjugates were investigated for determination of their fluorescence and photosensitizer abilities. These results will provide further insight and motivation for development of Bodipy based singlet oxygen photosensitizer systems. (C) 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
