Macrocyclic diacid 1 was designed and synthesized as an effective catalyst for hemiacetal cleavage. Molecular modelling studies (using Clark Still's MacroModel) show that 1 has many accessible low energy conformations with various degrees of carboxyl group convergence. A straightforward synthesis of 1 was developed (overall yield ca. 19-20%) starting from commercially available 2,6-dihydroxybenzoic acid. In the key-step, a Cs2CO3-mediated reaction under high dilution and slow addition gave the 28-membered ring of 1 as the only non-polymeric product in 45% yield. The dissociation constants of diacid 1 in a 1:1 H2O/MeOH mixture were measured.
