A series of macrocyclic N-substituted oligomethylenediamides of 4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-3,6-dioxaoctanedioic acid, 5,5-dimethyl-3,7-dioxanonanedioic and trans-1,2-cyclohexanedioxydiacetic acid were prepared. Selectivity of these compounds with respect to the structure of the molecule was investigated electrochemically in polymeric (PVC) membranes of ion-selective electrodes.
