Abstract

An amphiphilic calix[6]arene host effectively binds to ferrocenyl groups covalently attached to a self‐assembled monolayer on gold. Electrochemical evidence indicates that the calixarene binds the protruding ferrocenyl groups by including them in its lipophilic end (schematic representation below). (Figure Presented.)
