Title

A Mixed Lithium-strontium Polynuclear Complex Formed Within the Hexa-deprotonated Calix[8]arene Framework: The Synthesis and Structure of Li₄Sr₂(H₂L)(O₂CC₄H ₉)₂(dmf)₈ [H₈L = P-Pri- Or P-Bui-calix[8]arene]

Abstract

The deprotonation of calix[8]arenes (H8L) with BunLi in DMF followed by reaction with dry SrBr2 yielded the discrete molecular complexes Li4Sr2(H2L)(O2CC4H 9)2(dmf)8 (H8L: 1, p-Pri; 2, p-Bui); the crystal structures of these complexes of hexa-deprotonated calix[8]arenes show that mixed metal, polynuclear, inorganic cores can be formed within the large and flexible cavity of calix[8]arenes. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 1999.
