4',4 ''(5 '')-Di-tert-butyldibenzo-18-crown-6 (DTBB18C6) was synthesized using 4-tert-butyl catechol (TBC) as starting material, 2,2'-diethylene glycol di(p-touenesulfonate) as cyclization reagent, Cs2CO3 as template, and tetrahydrofuran (THF) as solvent The reaction was carried out in a sealed environment with nitrogen, and Cs2CO3 was supplemented in three steps. Response surface methodology (Rsm) was used to investigate the effects of reaction temperature (X-i), initial concentration of TBC (X-2), reaction time (X-3), and Cs2CO3/TBC molar ratio (X-4); the experiment method was compared with published methods. From the result of RSM, the operation conditions for maximum yield, such as reaction temperature, reaction time, initial concentration of TBC, and Cs2CO3/TBC molar ratio were found to be 49.15 degrees C, 72 h, 0.06 mol/L and 3.22, respectively. Under these optimum conditions, DTBB18C6 yield (Y) reached 43.38%.
