Abstract : The synthesis of 2,6-diethyl-3-methacroyloxymethyl- 1 ,5,7,8-tetramethylpyrromethene- BF2 (2) was prepared in straight forward fashion from 2,6-diethyl-1,3,5,7,8-pentamethylpyrromethene-BF2 (1) in three steps. The monomer unit 2 has been shown to be useful for copolymerization with methyl methacrylate for the synthesis of new solid-state optical materials. In addition, the synthesis of 1 has been modified to give greater yields of this useful laser dye.
