A novel bis-calix[5]arene (1) with divergent cavities was prepared in four steps starting from p-methylcalix[5]arene. This molecule is composed of two calix[5]-bis-crown-3 units held together, via their narrow rims, by a N,N ''-1,4-phenylene-bis[N'-(2-ethenyloxyethyl)]diureido bridging moiety. Owing to the anion-binding ability of the ureido moieties embedded in its framework, bis-calix[5]arene 1 acts as a heterotetratopic monomer and, in the presence of 1,8-octanediyldiammonium dichloride, self-assembles into AA/BB-type polycapsular oligomers. Extensive H-1 NMR investigations have demonstrated that the nature and stoichiometry of these supramolecular oligomers are strongly dependent on the concentration and the ratio of the two monomers.

Abstract

A novel bis-calix[5]arene (1) with divergent cavities was prepared in four steps starting from p-methylcalix[5]arene. This molecule is composed of two calix[5]-bis-crown-3 units held together, via their narrow rims, by a N,N ''-1,4-phenylene-bis[N'-(2-ethenyloxyethyl)]diureido bridging moiety. Owing to the anion-binding ability of the ureido moieties embedded in its framework, bis-calix[5]arene 1 acts as a heterotetratopic monomer and, in the presence of 1,8-octanediyldiammonium dichloride, self-assembles into AA/BB-type polycapsular oligomers. Extensive H-1 NMR investigations have demonstrated that the nature and stoichiometry of these supramolecular oligomers are strongly dependent on the concentration and the ratio of the two monomers.
