Boronic acid-functionalized microspheres are prepared for the first time via mild epoxide ring opening based on porous cross-linked polymeric microspheres (diameter ≈ 10 μm, porosity ≈ 1000 Å). Quantitative chemical analysis by XPS and EA evidences that there is a greater functionalization with boronic acid when employing a sequential synthetic method [1.7 atom% boron (XPS); 1.12 wt% nitrogen (EA)] versus a one-pot synthetic method [0.2 atom% boron (XPS); 0.60 wt% nitrogen (EA)] yielding grafting densities ranging from approximately 2.5 molecules of boronic acid per nm(2) to 1 molecule of boronic acid per nm(2) , respectively. Furthermore, the boronic acid-functionalized microspheres are conjugated with a novel fluorescent glucose molecule demonstrating a homogeneous spatial distribution of boronic acid.
