A new one-step procedure for the synthesis of monoalkylated calix[4]arenes is presented. Reaction of calix[l]arene la or lb with 1.2 equivalent of a weak base (K$O, in MeCN or CsF in DMF) and excess of alkylaring agent affords the nwnoalkylated calix[4/arenes in moderate to good yields. Calix[4]arenes (1) are versatile building blocks for molecules with(More)
