Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) A facile and efficient protocol for the synthesis of oligophenylene OPP(n)-substituted calix[4]arenes (with n up to 4) via iodo-substituted oligoarylcalix[4]arenes has been developed. The cooperation effect of the proximate fluoroionophores in hexylsulfanyl end-capped OPP(n)-substituted calix[4]arene assemblies leads to metal ion binding enhancement. © 2005 American Chemical Society.
