Versatile chemistry of the Bodipy chromophore allows modular assembly of an excitation energy donor, acceptor, and a cation selective ligand in just a couple of steps. The new approach should be applicable in other designs which target molecular sensors with large Stokes shifts and red to near IR emission.
