A small set of N,O-chelated isoquinoline-enol boron complexes featuring an aryl bromide functionality was prepared and employed in palladium-catalyzed Suzuki couplings with arylboronic acids and bis(pinacolato)diboron. This allowed to obtain two new series of functionalized N,O-chelated boron complexes and a novel type of bis-fluorophore hybrid. The optical properties of all obtained complexes were assessed in solid state and in dichloromethane solution.
