© Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2015. The synthesis of a C4 dissymmetric resorcinarene tetracarboxylic acid derivative and determination of its critical micelle concentration is reported. The tetrahydroxy derivative was prepared by reduction of the tetra-acid. The low-temperature single crystal X-ray structure of the methyl ester derivative of the tetra-acid is also reported. This crystallised with two independent molecules of similar boat (flattened cone) conformation within the asymmetric unit.
