Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs).

Title: Development of Novel Fluorescent Boronic Acid Sensor for the Analysis
of Boronic Acid-Containing Compounds in Aqueous Media
Author: Yoshihide Hattori
Affiliation: Research Center of Boron Neutron Capture Therapy, Osaka Prefecture University, 1-1 Gakuen-cho, Nakaku, Sakai, Japan
Abstract: Recently, new boron-containing drug have been touted as a new class of pharmaceuticals. However, most boron-detection methods require very expensive facilities and/or tedious pretreatments. In an effort to develop a novel and convenient detection method for boron-based
pharmaceuticals, boron chelating-ligands were synthesized for use in fluorescent boron-sensor. However, fluorescence quantum yield of boron-sensor was very low, and the sensor was easily decomposed in aqueous media. In this paper, the development of the novel convenient and stable fluorescent boron-sensor and the detecting method for the boronic acid-containing compounds using the boron-sensor are reported.
