OTX008 was lately reported as a novel calixarene compound which is derived from anginex and bonded to Gal-1 on the side back face, far away from the [beta]-galactoside binding site [16-18].
Although specific literature has often reported the use of additives, such as albumin and polyethylene glycol (SOARES et al., 2003), sporopollenin (YILMAZ et al., 2010), zeolite (VIDINHA et al., 2006), calixarene derivatives (SAHIN et al., 2009), ionic liquid (SOUZA et al., 2013), the use of ionic liquids (IL) in all areas of chemical industries has an excellent prospective due to their unique properties (KESKIN et al., 2007).
They cover highly selective extractants and a better understanding of phase-transfer phenomena, supramolecular interactions in the outer coordination spheres of extracted metal ions, molecular design and metal extraction behavior of calixarene compounds as host extractants, protein extraction by the recognition of lysine residues using macrocyclic molecules, interfacial molecular aggregation in solvent extraction systems, and supramolecular aspects of stable water-in-oil microemulsions in chemical separations.
