This volume is the first book to provide a practical introduction to the synthesis of macrocyclic compounds, which can be tailored to function as selective receptors for ions and neutral molecules. It contains a wealth of detailed information that is targeted not only towards those engaged insynthesis in universities and industry, but also at the non-specialist and the newcomer to the topic. Many of the protocols are suitable for inclusion in undergraduate practical classes. The initial chapters give full details of the synthesis of nitrogen, oxygen and sulphur containing macrocycles(e.g. benzo- and chiral crown ethers, cryptands and torands). Subsequent chapters give excellent coverage of the synthesis and elaboration of calixarenes, spherands, hemi-spherands and calix-spherands, and the final chapter lucidly explains the metal templated synthesis of catenanes. It is anessential text for those engaged in the synthesis of macrocyclic compounds and a perfect companion for the non-specialist keen to explore the chemistry of these exciting molecules.

From Our Editors

This volume provides a practical introduction to the synthesis of macrocyclic compounds, which can be tailored to function as selective receptors for ions and neutral molecules. Initial chapters address the synthesis of nitrogen-, sulfur-, and oxygen-containing macrocycles (e.g. benzo- and chiral crown ethers, cryptands, and torands). Subsequent chapters examine synthesis and elaboration of calixarenes, spherands, hemi-spherands, and calix-spherands, with a final chapter on the metal-templated synthesis of catenanes. There is a balance between 'classical ligands and more elaborate and recently defined macrocycles and many of the protocols are suitable for inclusion in advanced undergraduate classes. Macrocycle synthesis: a practical approach is an essential and detailed guide for all those engaged in the synthesis of macrocyclic compounds and interested in their coordination chemistry. It will appeal to the specialist and non-specialist alike, and should serve as an ideal introduction and companion for newcomers to the field.

Editorial Reviews

`this book is aimed, in the first place, at researchers, PhD and Masters students or at students placed in a research environment ... It will allow them to save a lot of time in an exercise where the difference between obtaining a macrocycle or a tar is often dependant on very strictexperimental conditions!'Andre Collet, Bulletin de la Societe Clinique de France Bulltin No 5
