ipso-Nitration of t-butyl calix[4]arene tetraethers and subsequent hydrogenation provides an easy access to monoamino calix[4]arenes. Reaction with di- and triacid chlorides leads to various double- and triple-calix[4]arenes. With tetraacid chlorides derived from calix[4]arenes in the cone- or 1,3-alternate-conformations penta-calix[4]arenes are available as molecularly uniform species, which may be regarded as the first generation of calix[4]arene based dendrimers. The structure of the mononitro tetraester derivative, which may serve as a general building block has been confirmed by single crystal X-ray analysis.

The reaction of monoamino calix[4]arenes with various acid chlorides leads to multi-calix[4]arenes. With tetraacid chlorides penta-calix[4]arenes are available, which may be regarded as the first generation of calix[4]arene based dendrimers.
