Abstract: The title compound, C62H76O5, known to be one of the most versatile synthetic precursors/intermediates of calixarene derivatives, adopts an approximate Cs-symmetric cone-in conformation. The aryloxybenzyl ring is tilted in such a way that the p-tert-butyl group fills the macrocycle cavity, while the benzyl group moves away from the cavity axis. In the crystal, this conformational arrangement is secured by intra- and intermolecular O-HO hydrogen bonds forming inversion dimers. Four tert-butyl groups are disordered over two orientations, with occupancy ratios of 0.745 (6):0.255 (6), 0.837 (5):0.163 (5), 0.850 (5):0.150 (5) and 0.845 (8):0.155 (8).
