Abstract: The first calixarenes bearing chiral glycidyl groups at the lower rim have been obtained by treatment of p-tert-butylcalix[4]arene (1a) and p-tert-butylcalix[6] with (1b) with glycidyl tosylate or 3-nitrobenzenesulfonate in the presence of a base. Their structure was established as syn-1,3-diglycidyl calix[4]arene 2, tetraglycidyl calix[4]arene 3 (partial cone, 1,2-alternate and 1,3-alternate confonners), and 1,2,4,5-tetraglycidyl calix[6]arene 4, respectively, by H-1 and C-13 NMR spectroscopy.
