With (2S,4S)-2,4-dimethyl-3-oxapentane-1,5-diol and (S)- or (R)-1-phenylethane-1,2-diol as chiral subunits, optically active azophenolic crown ethers (S,S,S,S)-1, (R,S,S,R)-2, (S,S,S,S)-3 and (R,S,S,R)-4 possessing two phenyl and two methyl substituents together with the p-(2,4-dinitrophenylazo)phenol moiety have been prepared in enantiomerically pure forms. Temperature-dependent enantiomer selectivity in the complexation of these crown ethers with chiral amines has been studied by the UV-visible spectroscopic method in chloroform and from the observed association constants, thermodynamic parameters for the complexation have been calculated.
