A biscalix[4]arene (7) in which the upper rims are linked by two Cu(II)-chelate complexes has been synthesized. This is a novel method for the synthesis of biscalix[4]arenes using the self-association nature of metal ligands. Compound 7 recognized diamine substrates using a cavity composed of two Cu(II)-chelate complexes.
