The syntheses and single crystal X-ray structure determinations of 5,11,17,23-tetra-tert-butyl-25,26,27,28-tetrakis(cyanomethoxy)calixarene (partial-cone conformer), 5,11,17,23-tetra-tert-butyl-25,27-bis(diethylcarbamoylmethoxy)-26,28-bis(cyanomethoxy)calixarene (cone and partial-cone conformers), 5,11,17,23-tetra-tert-butyl-25,26,27-tris(cyanomethoxy)-28-hydroxycalixarene, and 5,11,17,23-tetra-tert-butyl-25-diethylcarbamoylmethoxy-26,27,28-tris(cyanomethoxy)calixarene (cone conformer) are reported. The calixarenes are found to be conformationally mobile when heated in DMSO, favouring the partial-cone conformer at equilibrium. The tris-substituted cyanomethoxy derivative was found to assume the partial-cone conformation in the solid state. Attempts to convert nitrile groups to tetrazole moieties in derivatives containing both amide and nitrile groups were unsuccessful.
