Abstract

Calix[4]arenes in their 1,3-alternate conformation are particularly convenient scaffolds for the construction of extended calix tubes. These molecules can act as polytopic cation receptors and have the fascinating property of allowing cation transport ("shuttling") along the tube by passing through the ".-basic tube" formed by the macrocyclic rings of the calixarene units. Although calix tubes can also influence anion transport, this does not appear to involve anion shuttling.
