Boronic acid – conjugated dendrimers as a selective carbohydrate sensor

Boronic acids react with vincial diol via the formation of reversible boronates, constituting one of the most popular dynamic covalent reactions. This feature has been widely explored in various purposes including recognition of biomolecules and construction of responsive material. We will report our work on establishing boronic acid - conjugated dendrimers for carbohydrate binding and selective glucose sensing.
