Abstract

Oxacalix[4]arenes containing either one or two oxa-bridges afford di and undecanuclear Cu-II clusters respectively upon reaction with cupric nitrate under facile conditions. Variation in reaction conditions results in formation of a tetranuclear Cu-II cluster with mono-oxacalix[4]arene, representing a structural expansion of the dinuclear assembly.
