2,14-Dithiacalix[4]arene and its homooxa analogues: synthesis and dynamic NMR study of conformational behaviour

Author affiliations

Abstract

A simple and scalable synthesis of 2,14-dithiacalix[4]arene with alternating bridges (–CH2– and –S–) is reported. Proper selection of the bisphenol-based starting building blocks can provide not only the title compound (58%) but also yet unreported homooxa analogues possessing three different bridging units (–CH2–, –S– and –CH2–O–CH2–) in the molecule. These systems exhibit interesting conformational behaviour allowing for the study of flip-flop motion of the circular hydrogen bond arrays using dynamic NMR techniques.
