One or two long alkyl chains were introduced either on carbon or nitrogen atom of cyclam (1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecane) via the direct alkylation or the condensation of the alkylmalonate with the tetramine followed by the borane reduction. Long alkyl substituted cyclams thus obtained are sparingly soluble in water and can extract heavy metal ions from aqueous solution to an organic phase.
