Information
In this project, we aim to use this array of novel calixarene structures as a platform for the attachment of groups that can function as binders for molecules or ions of interest. This can be done making use of methodology earlier elaborated in the group. After the synthesis and characterization, the receptors will be evaluated for their binding properties by different spectral techniques. Techniques learned: Use of transition-metal catalysis, optimalisation of reaction conditions, organic synthesis and characterisation (NMR, MS, IR, UV, etc..). HPLC chiral separations.
