Abstract

Lithiation of the calix[6]arene methyl ether 2 followed by reaction with O2 yields derivatives with two opposite methylene groups hydroxylated. Calix[6]arenes with two opposite bridges functionalized with alkoxy, azido, and m-xylyl groups were prepared via reaction of a dichlorocalix[6]arene derivative with nucleophiles.
