Abstract: Herein, we report an efficient and facile synthesis of a new triptycene based tripodal ligand containing both imine functionality and phenolic pendant arms. This tripodal unit is a potential building block for constructing novel supramolecular architectures. The newly synthesized 2,6,14-triaminotriptycene derivative, which was characterized by FT-IR, UV−Vis absorption, mass and NMR spectroscopic techniques has interesting properties such as high solubility in common organic solvents and fluorescence emission in THF solution (λ = 550 nm).
