Recent efforts in our research group have led to the development of new methodology for the synthesis of bodipy analogues. The scope and limitations of the Liebeskind-Srogl cross-coupling reaction in the syhthesis of bodipys will be presented. Results of the coupling reaction of 8-thiomethylbodipy with boronic acids, organostanannes and organozinc derivatives will be described. The optical properties of selected examples will be discussed.
