[Chemical equation presented] New, acetylacetone-linked borondipyrromethene (BODIPY) dyes were readily obtained from BODIPY cores by various protocols involving direct grafting with acetylacetone or cross-coupling from a preorganized phenylacacH derivative bearing either an iodo or an ethynyl function. Facile anchoring on TiO2 powder is obtained and scrutinized by FT-IR spectroscopy.
