The structure of bis-benzo-15-crown-5 derivatives containing nitro groups and urethane linkages has been studied by FT-IR spectroscopy, regarding especially the secondary bonds (H-bridges) of the chain connecting the two crow rings of the molecule. It was concluded that the formation of an ion trap stabilized by intramolecular cross H-bonds between urethane NH groups and O atoms is presumable.
