Vanadyl bearing calix[4]arene ligands have undergone evaluation against several cell lines, and show varying degrees of toxicity. For vanadyl complexed to a sulfonylcalix[4]arene, monitoring of the strong blue fluorescence revealed slow uptake kinetics. The complex is exclusively found in the cytoplasm of the cells and uptake is not due to active endocytotic mechanisms.
