A boronic ester cage, which exhibits stimuli-responsive guest-release behavior, was constructed by self-assembly of tetrol with the indacene backbone and a fluorine-substituted benzenetriboronic acid derivative. The presence of fluorine substituents made it possible to control the guest release rate using simple amines by forming tetrahedral borates.
