Functional Calixarene Nanostructures

  • V. I. Kalchenko

The results of the author studies of functional calixarene nanostructures are summarized. Calixarenes modified by various functional groups were created with receptor properties relative to cations, anions, gases, organic molecules and biomolecules. Calixarene nanostructures have been used to develop extraction and adsorption agents for radionuclides, sensitive elements of chemosensors, porous materials for gas adsorption, stereoselective catalysts for organic reactions, biologically-active compounds, inhibitors of therapeutically-important enzymes, vectors for gene transfection, and fluorescent nanoparticles for cell visualization.

Key words

This work was carried out with the partial financial support of the directed joint research program of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine entitled Fundamental Problems in the Creation of New Compounds and Materials of Chemical Production.
