Studies on the Structure of N‑Phenyl-Substituted Hexaaza[16]paracyclophane: Synthesis, Electrochemical Properties, And Theoretical Calculation

The N-phenyl-substituted hexaaza­[16]­paracyclophane (3, hexamer) has been synthesized successfully in two steps and the noncoplanar conformation was calculated by Gaussian program. The electrochemical properties exhibited lots of interesting results and each overlapping oxidative wave contained two-electron transfer.
