Benefiting from the excellent host-guest binding capacity, p-sulfonatocalixarenes are widely used in the fabrication of versatile supramolecular assemblies in aqueous media. This review introduces the driving forces for supramolecular assembly based on the complexation of p-sulfonatocalixarenes with cationic guests and the key factors for morphology control; three usual models for supramolecular assembly involving calixarene-induced guest assembly, guest-induced calixarene assembly and calixarene-guest coassembly; and the applications in stimuli-responsive materials, drug delivery, multifunctional nanoplatform, and supramolecular catalysis.

Key words: p-sulfonatocalixarenes, supramolecular assemblies, functional applications
