The chloromethylation of calix[4]arene 1a and of the methyl ethers of calix[6]arene 1b and calix[8]arene 1c, using chloromethyl n-octyl ether and SnCl4 in chloroform at room temperature has been performed in good yield for the first time. The chloromethylated products 2a-c have been used as intermediates to introduce on calixarenes phosphonic acid groups which render these macrocycles water soluble and potentially useful in Host Guest Chemistry.

Abstract

The chloromethylation of calix[4]arene 1a and of the methyl ethers of calix[6]arene 1b and calix[8]arene 1c, using chloromethyl n-octyl ether and SnCl4 in chloroform at room temperature has been performed in good yield for the first time. The chloromethylated products 2a-c have been used as intermediates to introduce on calixarenes phosphonic acid groups which render these macrocycles water soluble and potentially useful in Host Guest Chemistry.
