dc.description.abstractThis Ph.D. thesis describes the synthesis, characterization and study of calix[6]arene derivatives as pivotal components for the construction of molecular machine prototypes. Initially, the ability of a calix[6]arene wheel to supramolecularly assist and increase the rate of a nucleophilic substitution reaction was exploited for the synthesis of two constitutionally isomeric oriented rotaxanes. Then, the synthesis and characterization of several hetero-functionalised calix[6]arene derivatives and the possibility to obtain molecular muscle prototypes was reported. The ability of calix[6]arenes to form oriented pseudorotaxane towards dialkyl viologen axles was then exploited for the synthesis of two calixarene-based [2]catenanes. As last part of this thesis, studies on the electrochemical response of the threading-dethreading process of calix[6]arene-based pseudorotaxanes and rotaxanes supported on glassy carbon electrodes are
