The present work describes the synthesis of a new monomeric dibenzonitrile derivative of p-tert-butylcalix[4]arene containing a polymerizable group at its lower rim. This monomer with an acryl amide group has been copolymerized with styrene yielding a linear polymer with pendant calixarene groups. Extraction studies with this monomer and its copolymer show no selectivity for metal cations. Nevertheless, dibenzonitrile groups with calixarene moiety provide a suitable binding site for transferring metal salt (NaHCr2O7) as an ion-pair.
