Palladium catalysed, aryl boronic acid homocoupling, is explored as a fluorescence sensing regime for saccharides. The catalytic formation rate of fluorescent bi-aryls, under control of a palladium catalyst, is modulated by the presence of saccharides. The nature of the aryl group, rate of biaryl formation and limits of detection are investigated.
