The detection of nuclear radiation necessitates the availability of new generations of tunable blue emitting fluorophores with high emission quantum yields. Here we show that pyridyl-1,2,4-triazole based diphenyl boron complexes can provide highly tuneable emission through facile modification of the C5 position of the 1,2,4-triazolato ring. The series of complexes prepared show a wide range of emission from near-UV to green, enabling fine control over the spectral overlap with detectors used in scintillator technology.
