The characteristics and properties that enable resorcinarenes to self-assemble
in order to form derivatives with amino acids with a high potential for application in various
fields are reviewed. In particular, resorcinarene synthesis, their characteristics, the
variety in the size of cavity, their functional groups, and their applications associated with
molecular interactions are described in this study. Also, the types of amino acids that can
be recognized by resorcinarenes, their interactions, the techniques that allow the determination
of the association constants, and the evaluation of the stoichiometry of the complex
formed, are reviewed.
