The synthesis of some substituted macrocyclic ether-ester compounds
A series of macrocyclic ether-esters has been prepared by treating various glycols with adipoyl chloride and various substituted malonyl, succinyl and glutaryl chlorides. The prepared compounds include: 15-ethyl- and 15-phenyl-1,4,7,10,13-pentaoxacyclohexadecane-14,16-dione (5 and 6); 15-methyl-, 15-phenyl-, cis-cyclohexo-[o]-, and benzo-[o]-1,4,7,10,13-pentaoxacycloheptadecane-14,17-dione (7-10); trans,trans-1,4,7,10,13,18,21,24,27,30-decaoxacyclotetratriacontane-15,32-diene-14,17,31,34-tetraone (11); 1,4,7,10,13-pentaoxacyclooctadecane-14,18-dione (12); 15,15,16,16,17,17-hexafluoro- and 16-methyl-1,4,7,10,13-pentaoxacyclooctadecane-14,18-dione (13 and 14); 1,4,7,10-tetraoxacyclohexadecane-11,16-dione (15); and 1,4,7,10,13-pentaoxacyclononadecane-14,19-dione (16).
