內容介紹：The ability to monitor analytes within physiological, environmental and industrial scenarios is of prime importance. Given that recognition events occur on a molecular level, gathering and processing the information poses a fundamental challenge. Therefore, robust chemical molecular sensors “chemosensors” with the capacity to detect chosen molecules selectively and signal this presence continue to attract considerable attention. This presentation will concentrate on fluorescent probes developed using boronic acids for diols, anions and reactive oxygen/nitrogen species (ROS/RNS). The aim of the research is to mimic nature’s level of sophistication in designing and producing chemosensors capable of determining the concentration (and location) of a target species including: saccharides, glycated proteins, anions and reactive oxygen/nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) in any medium.
