The optical property of fluorescent unit-conjugated aliphatic oxaboroles has been investigated. The oxaboroles provide good fluorescence quantum yields and selective recognition toward D-ribose and D-ribose containing molecules. The molecular recognition induced significant fluorescence quenching. The property of the boroles showed the possibility of the boron-based nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) sensor probe.
