Abstract:


The characteristics and properties that enable resorcin[4]arenes to self-assemble to form derivatives with amino acids with a high potential for application in various fields are reviewed. In particular, resorcin[4]arene synthesis, their characteristics, the variety in the size of the cavity, their functional groups, and their applications associated with molecular interactions are described. Also, the types of amino acids that can be recognized by resorcin[4]arenes, their interactions, the techniques that allow the determination of the association constants, and the evaluation of the stoichiometry of the complex formed are reviewed.

Keywords:

Amino acids, complexion, conformations, derivatization, resorcin[4]arenes, stoichiometry
