Calixmonoquinone (3) has been synthesized by oxidation of rigidly cone conformation of tripropoxy calixarene (2), and conformational characteristics of this molecule has been studied by means of dynamic nuclear magnetic resonance (DNMR) and HH– correlated nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (HH–COSY NMR). On the basis of the data that have been obtained free Gibbs energy of activation (ΔG#) for quinone ring interconversion process of 3 was determined 12.3±0.05 Kcal/mol by coalescence approximation method.
