Chemistry and Pharmacology
Introduction of one or two 2,2′-bipyridine units at the upper rim of the calixarene platform was performed by means of the Wittig reaction. The resulting alkenes were hydrogenated to give two new bipyridyl-based calixarene podands, which were studied as ligands for CoII cation. The mono-bipyridyldichlorocobalt complex was notably fully characterised by 1H-NMR and X-ray crystal structure analyses, which confirmed the tetrahedral coordination mode involving the bipyridyl subunit and the two chlorine atoms around the cobalt centre.
