We have designed and synthesized the first examples of fluorescent chemosensors based on octa-BODIPY decorated dendrimeric cyclotetraphosphazenes. The structures these synthesized compounds were verified by H-1, C-13, P-31 NMR spectroscopies and UV-vis electronic absorption spectra. The photophysical and metal sensing properties in THE solutions of dendrimeric cyclotetraphosphazenes (OBCP 1-3) were investigated by fluorescence spectroscopy. OBCP 1-3 showed strong absorption in the 500-640 nm region with high molar extinction coefficients. Additionally, octa-BODIPY decorated dendrimeric cyclotetraphosphazenes are candidate for fluorescent chemosensor for Co2+ showing high selectivity with a low limit of detection.
