Four (tropon-2-yl)monoaza-18-crown-6 ethers (3a-d) were prepared by the reactions of 2-methoxytropones (1a-d) with monoaza-18-crown-6 (2) in moderate yields. The UV-VIS spectra of these monoazacrown ethers (3a-d) were dramatically changed by adding metal salts. The complexations with moderately hard cations (Ba2+ and Pb2+) were more effectively occurred than those with hard cations (Ca2+, Na+, K+, and Cs+) and with soft cations (Hg2+ and Cd2+).
