    Seven dioxaborole compounds are investigated in this study. Structural and spectral characterization is done at M062X/6-31+G(d,p) level in the water. Active sites of these compounds are determined using molecular electrostatic potential (MEP) maps. Electrophilic and nucleophilic attack regions are determined. We aimed to determine whether Boron-Containing Compounds (BCCs) inhibitor used in the treatment of COVID-19 are effective against SARS Cov-2 in silico. Since SARS-CoV-2 is a worldwide health problem, anti-viral properties of studied boron-containing compounds were investigated by molecular docking calculations. In addition to these calculations, MM/PSBA calculations were performed. It was found that boron compounds can be good drug candidate against SARS-CoV-2 and the best compound is ((R)-1-((S)-3-(4-(aminomethyl)phenyl)-2-benzamidopropanamido)-4-guanidinobutyl)boronic acid (C26) (Tab. 2, Fig. 6, Ref. 29). Text in PDF Keywords: boronate ester, dioxaborole, in silico, SARS-CoV-2, MD calculations.
