Two ChemComm Viewpoints on calixarenes and cations

Since last year, our thought-provoking Viewpoints have highlighted some of the seminal research published in ChemComm and its predecessors over the last 100 years

Our Viewpoints focus the spotlight on significant impacts and breakthroughs resulting from ChemComm articles in the last century, and can serve as catalysts for active discussion and inspiration within the community.

Earlier this year, Jack Harrowfield’s Viewpoint focussing on the 1985 contribution of Tony McKervey’s group to the field of calixarenes and cations generated an enthusiastic response, including suggestions on other articles that were also felt to have played a seminal role in calixarene chemistry.  As a result, we have recently published an alternative Viewpoint by Alessandro Casnati on the impact of Communications published (in 1983 and 1984) by the group of Rocco Ungaro and Andrea Pochini.

Read both Viewpoints now and see the impact these groundbreaking Comms created:
