CHAPTER 4: Fluorescent chemosensors based on boronic acid derivatives

Zhiqian Guo, Juyoung Yoon

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


A boronic acid moiety can bind to nucleophilic species, such as fluoride ion and 1,2-diols, and arylboronates are converted into the corresponding phenols by treatment with hydrogen peroxide. Based on these reactivity profiles of boron compounds, various boronic acid and boronate-based fluorescent chemosensors have been developed to detect carbohydrates, dopamine, fluorides, metal ions and hydrogen peroxide.
