The synthesis of a series of new neutral boronate compounds as anion receptors based on the idea that electron-deficient boron would complex the anion of the ion pair was reported. The anion complexation effect of these boron compounds was further enhanced by attaching electron-withdrawing groups. The conductivity enhancement of lithium salts in non-aqueous solution was superior. The boronate compounds also displayed high electrochemical stability up to 5 V.
