How do modern empirical models in chemistry explain the B-N bonds in this compound? Maybe we should consider this bond as having bond order = 0.5?
The same story with metalloporphyrins.

Why 0.5? What’s the problem with 1?
 

Related to I have a question about this molecule (bodipy) and B-N bonds

1. What is a B-N bond?

A B-N bond is a chemical bond between a boron atom and a nitrogen atom. It is a covalent bond where the two atoms share a pair of electrons.

2. What are the properties of B-N bonds?

B-N bonds are known for their high stability and resistance to hydrolysis. They are also highly polarized due to the electronegativity difference between boron and nitrogen.

3. How are B-N bonds formed in bodipy molecules?

In bodipy molecules, B-N bonds are typically formed through a series of chemical reactions involving boron and nitrogen-containing compounds. These reactions result in the formation of a stable B-N bond within the bodipy structure.

4. What is the significance of B-N bonds in bodipy molecules?

The presence of B-N bonds in bodipy molecules is crucial for their optical and electronic properties. These bonds play a key role in determining the fluorescence and absorption characteristics of bodipy dyes.

5. Are there any applications of B-N bonds in bodipy molecules?

Yes, B-N bonds in bodipy molecules have various applications in areas such as fluorescence imaging, sensors, and organic electronics. Their unique properties make them valuable in a wide range of technological applications.
