Abstract Dynamic covalent functionality has been acknowledged as a powerful tool for the construction of organised architectures, the reversible nature thermodynamically facilitates self-control and self-correction. The use of boronic acids complexation with diols and their congeners has already shown great promise in realising and developing reversible boron-containing multicomponent systems with dynamic covalent functionality. The structure-directing potential has lead to the development of a variety of self-organisation involving not only macrocycles, cages and capsules, but also porous covalent organic frameworks and polymers. Structure controls as well as remarkable synthesis are highlighted in this feature article.
