Several water-soluble calixarenes were synthesized via Huisgen 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition between azides and alkynes. Cationic, anionic, and nonionic calixarenes were prepared from a common azidocalixarene intermediate. Azidocalixarenes performed better than alkynylcalixarenes as precursors. The aggregation behavior of the water-soluble calixarenes was studied by 1H NMR spectroscopy.
