Special Issue Information
Ion recognition continues to attract the interest of researchers all over the world, due to the important role that cations and anions play in biological and chemical systems, and in the environment. Calixarenes, owing to their structural features, are one of the most widely studied supramolecular hosts. They possess a well-defined hydrophobic cavity available in different sizes and conformations, and an almost unlimited number of derivatives can be obtained by functionalization of their upper and lower rims. These macrocyclic compounds have been largely exploited as ionic and neutral molecule receptors, and present an increasing number of applications in different fields, such as organocatalysis, sensing, extraction and separation, and recently in biomedicine. Due to the high participation of the scientific community in the previous Special Issue, we decided to continue this topic. Thus, the second Issue of Calixarene Complexes: Synthesis, Properties and Applications aims to update the host–guest chemistry of calixarenes and related compounds, showing their most recent properties and applications, as well as progresses in their syntheses. Research and review articles on topics related to this field are welcome.
