A novel hybrid macrocyclic receptor based on bile acid and calixarene has been synthesized using the α-face of the bile acid and cone-conformation of calixarene. Metal recognition properties of receptor were investigated. The receptor showed the strongest affinity for Hg 2+ in acetonitrile. The stoichiometry of the Receptor:Hg 2+ was 1:1.
