Abstract: Recent advances in the area of recognition and sensing have shown that artificial receptors derived from extended calix[4]arenes bearing multiple π-conjugated fluorophoric or chromophoric systems have found useful to enhance binding affinity, selectivity and sensitivity for recognition and sensing of a targeted ion or molecule. A comprehensive review of various π-conjugation-extended calyx[4]arene-based receptors with the highlight on the design and binding characterization for recognition and sensing is presented.
Keywords: Extended calix[4]arene; cooperative binding; recognition; sensing
