Abstract
Sodium and potassium phenoxide, in the presence of one equivalent of dicyclohexano-18-crown-6(cis-anti-cis isomer) and dibenzo-18-crown-6, form complexes that have a ratio of 1:1:1 (crown:salt:phenol) in ethereal solvents containing excess phenol. On the other hand, complexes having 1:1:2 ratios (crown:salt:phenol) are obtained under the same conditions when the macrocycle is 18-crown-6 or dicyclohexano-18-crown-6 (cis-syn-cis isomer). When only one equivalent of phenol is present, then 1:1:1 complexes are obtained with 18-crown-6 and dicyclohexano-18-crown-6 (cis-syn-cis isomer). No complexes containing only the metal salts were isolated from these solutions.
