This critical review will explore some of the recent research into the use of boron based anion receptors and focus on those receptors that have been designed to transduce the binding event into a measurable output signal. In particular the review will concentrate on optical chemosensors, where the signal produced is in the form of a colour or fluorescence change (116 references).
