A novel calix[4]arene-based chemosensor 1 based on Hg2+-induced fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) was synthesized, and its sensing behavior toward metal ions was investigated by UV/vis and fluorescence spectroscopies. Addition of Hg2+ to a CH3CN solution of 1 gave a significantly enhanced fluorescence at approximately 575 nm via energy transfer(More)
The functionalized mono-alkyne cone-monopropargyl p-tert-butylcalix[4]arene was synthesized by the reaction of p-tert-butylcalix[4]arene with K(2)CO(3) and 3-bromo-1-propyne. More prolonged reaction times led to the formation of the 1,3 cone bis(propargyl)calix[4]arene . The tetra-alkyne species cone-tetrapropargyl p-tert-butylcalix[4]arene and its(More)
The title compound, C(47)H(60)O(6).3CHCl(3), is the first example of a lower-rim mono-ester calixarene derivative to be crystallographically characterized. The cone conformation adopted by the macrocycle is stabilized by three intramolecular hydrogen bonds. Self-inclusion of the methyl ester chain in the cavity of an adjacent molecule gives rise to infinite(More)
