Using Azahetercyclic Electrophiles to Synthesize Novel Bicyclooxacalixarenes and OxacalixNhexylnaphthalimide[ 2]naphthyridines
Document Type Honors Thesis (Open Access)
Various bicyclooxacalixarenes, tricyclooxacalixarenes and oxacalixNhexylnapthalimide[ 2]naphthyridines are synthesized via SNAr condensation. This research has involved synthesis optimization. The oxacalixNhexylnaphthalimide[ 2]naphthyridines have exhibited host-guest binding in fluorescence experiments. These compounds have been characterized by NMR spectroscopy as well as single crystal X-ray diffraction.
