Relates calixarenes to nanochemistry - key information for industries engaged in the production of high-tech materials
A timely review of both what is known and the exciting prospects provided by calixarenes
Chapters define the importance of calixarenes as reagents in nanochemistry
Calixarenes are used in many applications of supramolecular chemistry as the "molecules of choice" (useful reagents for nanochemistry), e.g. syntheses of calixarene derivatives functioning as molecular reactors, molecular syringes, molecular tubes,dendrimers,catenands, rotaxanes
