Abstract

The monohydroxycalix[6]arene derivative 4a was prepared via photochemical bromination of hexamethoxycalix[6]arene 3a in aq THF. Monohydroxycalix[6]arene 4a and its chloro derivative 5 are useful synthetic intermediates for the preparation of structurally diverse calix[6]arenes functionalized at a single methylene bridge.
