Abstract

A fundamental study of the conformations of [7.7]-, [8.8]-, [9.9]-, [11.11]- and octamethyl[8.8]-paracyclophanes in the solid state shows that the [odd.odd] members of the series possess parallel, symmetrically disposed benzene rings. A new genre of inclusion phenomenon based on donor-halogen EDA interactions is also defined and the potential of cyclophanes to act as hosts both in this capacity and to benzenes is discussed.
