On the scope and limitations of the Heck reaction of upper rim tetraiodocalix[4]arenes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Upper rim substituted tetraiodocalix[4]arenes are coupled to a variety of olefins using the palladium catalysed Heck reaction. Tetraolefinic upper rim substituted calix[4]arenes are obtained in good yields. All of the olefins are coupled with exceptionally high stereoselectivity to produce the all-(E) isomers. The optimisation of reaction conditions as well as the scope and limitation of the reaction with respect to a variety of olefins are discussed.
