Recent advances in the area of recognition and sensing have shown that artificial receptors derived from extended calixarenes bearing multiple conjugated fluorophoric or chromophoric systems have found useful to enhance binding affinity, selectivity and sensitivity for recognition and sensing of a targeted ion or molecule. A comprehensive review of various conjugation-extended calixarene-based receptors with the highlight on the design and binding characterization for recognition and sensing is presented.
