Compound 1 which has a 1,10-phenanthroline moiety to constitute the helical structure and a boronic acid moiety to bind saccharides was synthesized. The Cu(I) complex (as 12·Cu(I)) gave the different CD spectra reflecting the helicity, which is regulated by the absolute configurational structure of saccharides. Thus, the P versus M helicity of the complex can be controlled by the boronic acid-saccharide interaction. The results show that the terminal boronic acid group is useful to create chiral helical structure, the helicity of which is governed by a sugar library.
