Abstract

Boronic acid is known to complex with saccharides in basic aqueous media with an inherent selectivity order. Cooprative binding of diboronic acid which creates a sugar diboronic acid macrocycle has been utilized in design of molecular receptors with a diffrent selectivity order. Cooparative binding together with photoinduced electron transfer mechanism has been utilized in design of sensitive and selective saccharide sensors.
