Intrinsically glucoside-based microspheres are prepared in olive oil via a water-in-oil inverse suspension polymerization. The microspheres are characterized by scanning electron microscopy, Fourier transform infrared microscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. A novel boronic acid fluorescent molecule is subsequently conjugated to the microspheres exhibiting the spatial distribution of glucoside as well as the affinity of the microspheres to bind with boron.
