Contributions featuring the chemistry and applications of a family of macrocyclic compounds collectively known as ''calixarenes'' are presented in this edited volume. The arsenal of structures based on calixarenes provides tools which are effective in numerous areas of supramolecular chemistry. The Editors have compiled a timely volume which contains up to date, high calibre contributions from a large number of international authors. A broad perspective on the progress and future of calixarene chemistry is presented. Aimed at students and researchers active in Supramolecular Chemistry.

Editorial Reviews

"Book is most appropriate for synthetic chemists . as the examples and analyses provided incorporate concepts from various fields. Examples for topics like NMR, coordination chemistry, and unit symmetry could certainly be pulled from this text and applied to specific discussions in graduate courses. In brief, this is a text primarily for researchers involved in this type of chemistry, but it will also be a valuable reference for faculty teaching graduate-level courses. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, faculty and professionals." (J. Tedesco, Choice, Vol. 54 (8), April, 2017)
