A multicomponent reaction, symbolized on the cover by a puzzle, was used to prepare a molecularly diverse series of boron-containing heterocyclic dyes [boronic acid salicylidenehydrazone (BASHY) dyes]. The dyes are strongly fluorescent in the green-yellow spectral range and were applied in cell-staining protocols to visualize lipid droplets (as shown in the background of the picture).
