A rapid, safe and efficient method for the synthesis of novel molecular tweezers with one chiral arm based on deoxycholic acid was reported. Ten new molecular tweezers have been synthesized in good yields. The structures of these new molecular tweezers were characterized by 1H NMR, IR, MS spectra and elemental analysis. These chiral molecular tweezers showed good enantioselectivity for D-amino acid methyl esters.
