A new type of structurally rigid BODIPY dye having spirofluorene moieties has been synthesized. These structurally constrained BODIPY dyes with spirofluorene moieties exhibit an intense bathochromic fluorescence. The solvent dependence of fluorescence ON/OFF switching of a BODIPY dye having an amino moiety was observed.
