The synthesis of tetra-acrylamido-calix[4]arene capsules

Author affiliations


Upper rim substituted tetra-acrylamido-calix[4]arenes have been synthesised using the palladium catalysed Heck reaction; the compounds display solvent dependent aggregation in solution to form dimeric capsules stabilised by only eight amide C[double bond, length as m-dash]O–H–N hydrogen bonds and π–π interactions.
