      The synthesis of calix[4]arenes with functional groups tethered   to a single methylene bridge has been explored. Mono-lithiated   calix[4]arenes react with 1,u-bromochloroalkanes to give   2-(u-chloroalkyl)-calix[4]arenes, which function as key   intermediates in the synthesis of a variety of   tether-functionalized calix[4]arenes. Subsequent reactivity of   these chloroalkyl species has allowed for successful synthesis of   2-(u-iodoalkyl)-calix[4]arenes,   2-(u-pyridiniumalkyl)-calix[4]arenes, and   2-(u-aminoalkyl)-calix[4] arenes. This latter group of   amine-terminated calix[4]arenes are especially significant as   they may serve as useful entries to a wide range of subsequent   chemistry, including metal coordination or attachment to a solid   support. Both alkyl and aryl amines have been incorporated at the   end of the tether, and a 2,6-

      diisopropylaniline derivative has been analyzed by X-ray   diffraction.
