Inherently, chiral calix[4]arenes (9,10) with carboxamidc bridges spanning the proximal positions on the lower rim and 18 achiral counterparts have been synthesized by double intramolecular cyclization of 7b,8b 1,3-and 17 1,2-bis-chloroalkylamides. The conformational analysis of the 1,3- and 1,2-disubstituted calixarene intermediates 5-8 and 15-17 proved an equilibrium of two distorted cone conformations. The success of ring closure was strictly dependent on the chain length of the open chain precursors.
