Synthetic routes to forty-four dibenzocrown ether alcohols are reported. The new crown ether compounds are based on a sym-dibenzo-16-crown-5 platform. Most have a hydroxy group and an alkyl, aryl, aralkyl, alkenyl, alkynyl, or perfluoroalkyl group on the central carbon of the three-carbon bridge. Others have substituted benzene rings and either a hydroxy or -O(CH2)(n) OH group attached to the central carbon of the three-carbon bridge.
