Chiral carbazole-based BODIPYs with a binaphthyl unit were synthesized via an Al-mediated reaction. Et2AlCl was found to be a convenient reagent for the reaction to give the chiral BODIPYs in high yields. It has been shown for the first time that these chiral carbazole-based BODIPYs show circularly polarized luminescence (CPL) both in solution and in the solid state.
