Resorcin[4]arene cavitands

Methods for preparation of partially bridged resorcin[4]arene cavitands (R = n-C6H13) from resocin[4]arene were developed. Several different asymmetric cavitands with one or two substituents (R`) attached to the upper rim were prepared. This synthetic route can be used for formation of other modified cavitands bearing specific functional groups, for example, dye labels for spectroscopic studies or guest recognition centers for selective guest binding.
