1-Butylboronic acid is used as a reagent for preparation of volatile derivatives of diols, e.g. carbohydrates, for GC and mass spectrometry and to prepare chiral oxazaborolidines. It is a precursor to unsymmetric borinic acids, which are inhibitors of serine proteases. Can be used as a transport carrier in membrane-based sugar separations and as an analytical reagent in the determination of serum glucose.
