Chiral α-D-glucose-based monoaza-15-crown-5 ethers with phosphonoalkyl side chain (5a-e) have been synthesised. The substituent at the nitrogen atom had a major influence on the cation binding ability of the azacrown. The new lariat ethers (5a-e) showed significant asymmetic induction as phase transfer catalysts in the Michael addition of 2-nitropropane to chalcone.
