Rather than emphasizing the molecular properties of calixarenes, it covers in depth their supramolecular functions, enlightening the reader as to the peculiar features of calixarenes as hosts and as platforms for the synthesis of more complex receptors and catalysts. Topics covered in detail include the use of calixarenes in:-- theoretical investigation of host-guest interactions-- crystal engineering-- cation extraction and transport-- union recognition-- supramolecular devices-- new materials-- self-assembly processes-- supramolecular catalysisThe interest in calixarenes has grown tremendously in the last few years and this book reports, for each topic, the most recent literature critically evaluated by active researchers in the field. Calixarenes in Action is a valuable reference book for researchers in organic, inorganic, analytical and environmental chemistry and can serve as a graduate-level text for students of supramolecular science and technology.
