Bis-(2'- or 4'-carbonyl)phenyl glycols (podands) were synthesized by reacting ortho- and para-vanillin and 2'- and 4'-hydroxy acetophenone with mono or diethylene glycol dihalides. The products were characterised using IR, H-1-NMR, C-13-NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry. Aromatic carbonyl derivatives of glycols were investigated to determine the role of Na+ ions, using steady state fluorescence spectroscopy. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
