Macrocycles 2a and 2b, containing a proton-ionizable 1,2,4-triazole subcyclic unit, havebeen obtained from the appropriate 3,5-disubstituted N-amino-1,2,4-triazoles and tetraethyleneglycol derivatives. The N-amino function was used as a protective group in the macrocyclization step. The method allowed the preparation of the chiral macrocycle 2b in three steps, from S-lactic acid, in high optical purity and an overall yield of 16%. Triazolyl lone pairs of the macrocycles 2a and 2b, and of their N-aminated precursors 1a and 1b, participate in the complexation of Eu(fod)3 and Pr(fod)3, as well as the crown ether moieties, but not N-amino groups which, when present, were found to be inside the cavity. Ion transport rates towards alkali-metal ions through a bulky chloroform phase were low and showed little selectivity.
