Abstract

A new saccharides sensor based on the TTF-anthracene dyad with two boronicacid (2) groups was designed and synthesized. This new saccharides sensor showsselectivity towards D-glucose while its analogue with one boronic acid group (1) wasreported to bind D-Fructose selectively. Moreover, reaction of compound 2 with uridineinduced even larger fluorescence enhancement under the same condition.
