Diols and anions can control the formation of an exciplex between a pyridinium boronic acid with an aryl group connected via a propylene linker

Abstract

The exciplex formation between a pyridinium boronic acid and phenyl group connected via a propylene linker can be monitored using fluorescence. Addition of pinacol affords a cyclic boronate ester with enhanced Lewis acidity that increases the strength of its cation–π stacking interaction causing a four-fold fluorescence enhancement.
