Abstract

Calixarenes are a class of macrocyclic phenols that range in size from calix[4]arene, containing four linked phenols, to calix[20]arene. This chapter focuses on metallocalixarenes that fall into the category of metal phenolates, that is, metallocalixarenes in which the metal is bound directly to the phenolic moiety. The coordination chemistry of calixarene from 2001–2012 is reviewed, divided by groups in the periodic table; s-block, transition, heavy main group (p-block), and rare earth metallocalixarenes. Synthesis, structural chemistry, and applications are discussed.
