In the study, the new hexa-bodipy functionalized dendrimeric cyclotriphosphazene conjugates (HBCP 1 and 2) have been successfully synthesized and characterized by using general spectroscopic techniques such as H-1, C-13 and P-31 NMR spectroscopies. The photophysical and metal sensing properties in THE solutions of dendrimeric cyclotriphosphazene conjugates (HBCP 1 and 2) were investigated by UV-Vis and fluorescence spectroscopies in dilute tetrahydrofuran solutions. These dendrimers showed strong absorption bands 501 and 641 nm at low concentration with high molar extinction coefficients. In addition, the stoichiometry of the complex between the conjugate (HBCP 2) and Co2+ ions were determined by a job's plot obtained from fluorescence titrations. The metal sensing data showed that the hexa-bodipy functionalized dendrimeric cyclotriphosphazene conjugate (HBCP 2) is a candidate for fluorescent chemosensor for Co2+ ions due to showing high selectivity with a low limit of detection.
