Calixarene and resorcarene based receptors: from structural and thermodynamic studies to the synthesis of a new mercury(II) selective material.


Materials used in current technological approaches for the removal of mercury lack selectivity. Given that this is one of the main features of supramolecular chemistry, receptors based on calix[4]arene and calix[4]resorcarene containing functional groups able to interact selectively with polluting ions while discriminating against biologically essential… (More)
