The geometry and electronic structure of several phosphinine-ether macrocycles were investigated at semiempirical level. The calculated geometries are in good agreement with experimental data. Compared to phosphinine, the coordinative abilities of phosphinineether macrocycles based on energy considerations suggest a little lowered π acceptor character, while π donor character is improved. The molecular environment causes a significant mixing of phosphinine and phenyl substituent π levels. The geometry and electronic properties of phosphinine-ether macrocycles can provide significant host coordination properties for guest species.
