A series of structurally related dibenzo-15-crown-5, dibenzo-18-crown-6, and dibenzo-21-crown-7 compounds with oxymethylacetoxy side arms is synthesized by reaction of the corresponding crown ether alcohols with potassium hydride and bromoacetic acid. Multi-step synthetic routes to the crown ether alcohol precursors are reported.
