A novel hybrid host has been obtained by fusion of the calix[4]arene skeleton with a cycloparaphenylene (CPP) ring. The CPP-bridged calix[4]arene 1 combines the optoelectronic and structural properties of the CPP rings with the recognition abilities of the calix[4]arene hosts. Thus, calix-CPP 1 shows an unexpected selectivity for the Li+ cation over Na+, as a result of more favorable cation center dot center dot center dot pi interactions of Li+ with the CPP bridge and its better size complementarity.

Abstract

A novel hybrid host has been obtained by fusion of the calix[4]arene skeleton with a cycloparaphenylene (CPP) ring. The CPP-bridged calix[4]arene 1 combines the optoelectronic and structural properties of the CPP rings with the recognition abilities of the calix[4]arene hosts. Thus, calix-CPP 1 shows an unexpected selectivity for the Li+ cation over Na+, as a result of more favorable cation center dot center dot center dot pi interactions of Li+ with the CPP bridge and its better size complementarity.
