The newly synthesized dioxaborine dyes were studied aiming to probe amines and carbon nanotubes, which are potential toxic industrial polluters. To detect the targeted analytes in efficient way, series of ca. 20 dioxaborine dyes were synthesized and tested for reactivity with amines and carbon nanotubes. The most promising result was showed for styryl dye with the fluorescent sensitivity to amines up to 1 ppm. A fluorescent response of the dioxaborine dyes on presence of carbon nanotubes was revealed.
