Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) Novel macrocycles possessing ether linkages and 2,6-disubstituted phenolics were produced in one step and with 100% atom economy by isoaromatization of chameleon macrocyclic precursors possessing 2,6-diarylidenecyclohexanone moieties. Intramolecular hydrogen bonding of the phenolic hydrogen atoms influenced the shape of the macrocycles and dictated host-guest behavior.
