Synthetic modifications of guest host properties in calix[6]arenes Vandel, Mason Sheldon


This project investigated the synthesis and characterization of several calix[6]arene azo dyes and attempts to link calix[6]arenes with terpyridine moieties with various alkyl chains. Mass spectrometry was used to confirm the presence of the fully substituted dyes as well as several partially substituted calix[6]arenes. ¹H NMR spectroscopy was used to propose a possible conformation of one of the calix[6]arene dyes as well as characterize several allyl substituted calix[6]arenes. NMR studies were also used to identify the product of a Mitsunobu cross coupling reaction between calix[6]arene and terpyridine.
