This chapter focuses on the recent developments in calixarenes chemistry using luminescence aspect. This aspect comprises host guest system of luminescent guests with calixarenes as well as luminescent organic moieties tethered calixarene systems. The utilization of organic moieties tethered calixarene systems towards sensor applications for anions, cations and biomolecules is explored. The calixarene systems are used as a platform as well as convenient receptors for the luminescent sensor systems. The ease of modification in the rims of calixarenes renders numerous synthetic possibilities to recognise a particular target molecule and also to fabricate solid state luminescent sensor systems.

Keywords: Aggregation, Amino acids, Anion, Bioimaging, Biomolecule, Calixarene, Cation, Chemosensor, Device, Drug, Dye, Emission, Fluorescence, Host-guest, Interaction, Lanthanoids, Luminescence, Macrocycle, Nanoparticles, Recognition.
