Abstract

A number of D3h symmetric bicyclocalix[2]arene[2]triazine core compounds were synthesized via a general and good-yielding (43-48% yield) facile protocol starting from cyanuric halides, phloroglucinol and K2CO3 under very mild reaction conditions. These cage-like compounds are tolerate with different reaction conditions and can be derived with other functional groups in high yield. The X-ray crystal structures show these compounds have slightly distorted D3h symmetric structures. Due to the unique molecular topological structure, bicyclocalix[2]arene[2]triazine molecules form unique layered comb networks when hydrogen bond groups exist (such as CO2H, B(OH)2), which represent a new kind of building block unit for supramolecular architectures.
