p-tert-Butylcalix[4]arene-based dipodal receptor has been synthesized in cone conformation. The binding affinity of this receptor was evaluated with some aliphatic diacetates such as malonate, succinate, glutarate, adipate, pimelate, and suberate in CH3CN. The receptor has the highest binding affinity for pimelate by making a 1:1 complex. This receptor was used to estimate pimelate in the presence of other dicarboxylates.
