Abstract

A rapid and facile TLC staining method is reported for the qualitative analysis of boronic acids and related boron-containing derivatives. A red colouration is observed when boron is present due to the formation of a boron-curcumin complex. The structure of the phenylboronic acid-curcumin complex was confirmed using single crystal X-ray diffraction data.
