Description

Drawing on reports published since 2005, this book is the only one to cover the latest advances concerning the properties of calixarenes of various structures, while highlighting their future applications in science and new technologies.
Clearly divided into three main topic areas, this monograph deals with the synthesis of new calixarenes and their functionalization, properties and applications of such related compounds as resorcinarenes, cavitands, and capsules, as well as practical applications of the species considered.
