Abstract: Trihydroxy[3.3.1]metacyclophane, which can be regarded as an unsymmetrical or incomplete "homocalix[3]arene", has been prepared from rimethoxy[3.3.1]metacyclophane by demethylation with trimethylsilyl iodide in MeCN. Di-O-methylation at the lower rim of trihydroxy[3.3.1]metacyclophane in the presence of K<inf>2</inf>CO<inf>3</inf> in acetone afforded a novel, inherently chiral calixarene-analogue, namely a macrocyclic [3.3.1]metacyclophane, possessing C<inf>1</inf> symmetry. The inherent chirality of the two conformers was characterized by <sup>1</sup>H NMR spectroscopy by addition of an excess of Pirkle's chiral shift reagent [(S)-(+)-1-(9-anthryl)-2,2,2-trifluoroethanol], which caused a splitting of the OMe group and AB patterns corresponding to the methylene protons.
