A new series of macrocyclic ligands containing the dialkylhydrogenphosphate moiety is reported. These compounds were prepared by reacting phosphorus oxychloride with the appropriate oligoethylene glycol followed by a hydrolysis step. One of these new macrocyclic compounds transported the alkali metal cations as well as lead, zinc and silver ions.
