Various bicyclooxacalixarenes, tricyclooxacalixarenes and oxacalixN-hexylnapthalimidenaphthyridines are synthesized via SnAr condensation. This research has involved synthesis optimization. The oxacalixN-hexylnaphthalimidenaphthyridines have exhibited host-guest binding in fluorescence experiments. These compounds have been characterized by NMR spectroscopy as well as single crystal X-ray diffraction.
