Although many promising aspects of the chemistry of calix[4] arenes have been highlighted in recent years, relatively little attention has been paid to the co-ordination chemistry of these macrocyclic molecules. The present paper describes some recent developments made with platinum metal complexes attached to calix phosphine ligands, that is, calixarenes substituted with phosphino groups.
