We report a small library of fluorophore-triazine tripod fluorescent system that can accommodate a combination of three different functional groups, such as fluorophore (BODIPY), ligand (or ligands) and auxiliary group. Syntheses, photophysical properties as well as binding properties towards metal ions of these BODIPY-triazine derivatives are described.
