The cholesteryl phenylboronic acid (1) and its complexes with mono saccharides (2:1; 1/monosaccharide) were prepared. Many of the isolated complexes form gels in a variety of solvents, some of which display D vs L chiral discrimination. This is the first example of chiral discrimination in a saccharide based gel system.
