A Non-Cross-Coupling Approach to Arene-Bridged Macrocycles: Synthesis, Structure, and Direct, Regioselective Functionalization of a Cycloparaphenylene Fragment


A new synthetic strategy that employs a relatively unstrained, 1,4-diketo-bridged macrocycle as a precursor to a strained, 1,4-arene-bridged (bent <i>para</i>-phenylene) macrocycle has been developed. The distorted <i>p</i>-terphenyl nucleus (CPP fragment) of the macrocycle has been characterized by X-ray crystallography, and a direct, regioselective bromination protocol of the macrocyclic system is reported
