Circularly polarized luminescence (CPL) has shown promising application potentials in 3D display, optical data storage, smart sensors/probers, CPL lasers, and light source for asymmetric photosynthesis. In the last decade, the CPL-active small organic molecules (CPL-SOMs) have attracted rapidly increasing research interest owing to the great advantages of SOMs, such as high luminescence efficiency, facile modification of chemical structure, fine emission wavelength tuning, precise relationships between structure and properties, and as well as easy fabrication. Promoted by the unique effects of boryl group, such as strong electron-accepting ability, great steric effect, and Lewis acidity to bind with Lewis bases, we herein summarized our recent research results about the creation of CPL-SOMs by modification of chiral scaffolds, such as [2.
