Recognition of amino acids by functionalized calixarenes

Author affiliations

Abstract

The calixarenic receptors exhibit remarkable host–guest properties towards biologically relevant guests. Aspects of complex formation reactions between both native and derivatized amino acids, di-and tripeptides with calixarenic (chiral or not) receptors are summarized in this critical review. Thus, the discussions emphasize the parameters that affect the molecular binding selectivity and efficiency of functionalized calix[n]arenes towards these substrates. A brief survey on their application in separation of amino acids is also considered (123 references).
