Title: Synthesis, crystal structure and antioxidant evaluation of C-4-acetamidophenylcalix[4]pyrogallolarene

C-4-acetamidophenylcalix[4]pyrogallolarene was synthesized by an acid catalyzed condensation reaction of pyrogallol with 4-acetamidobenzaldehyde. The compound was characterized by IR, {sup 1}H and {sup 13}C NMR spectroscopy. Single crystal X-ray analysis revealed that the molecule crystallized in a triclinic system with space group Pī and the unit cell dimensions a= 12.2948(16) Å, b= 13.4423(17) Å, c= 13.5906(18) Å, α =107.549(4)°, β =102.034(4)°, γ =90.535(4)°, Z= 1 and V= 2088.2(5) Å{sup 3}. The macrocyclic calix adopts a chair (C{sub 2h}) conformation and the molecule is associated with eight DMSO molecules of crystallization. Antioxidant test by DPPH method showed that the compound exhibits good antioxidant activity of about 72%.
