In this study we have performed ab initio computer simulations to investigate the conformational characteristics of the tetraethyl (1) and triethyl ester (2) of p-tert-butylcalix[4]arene. The structures of different conformational isomers for each compound have been optimized using ab initio RHF/6-31G methods. After optimization, B3LYP/6-31+G(d,p) single point calculations of the final structures are done to include the effect of electron correlation and the basis set with diffuse function and polarization function. Relative stability of tetraethyl ester (1) of p-tert-butylcalix[4]arene is in following order: cone (most stable) > partial cone > 1,3- alternate > 1,2-alternate isomer. Relative stability of triethyl ester (2) of p-tert-butylcalix[4]arene is in following order: cone (most stable) > 2-partial cone > 1-partial cone > 3-partial cone ~ 1,3-alternate ~ 1,2- alternate isomer.
