A novel cyclophane, 17, 17, 40, 40-tetramethyl-7, 30-dinitro-1, 10, 24, 33-tetraoxa[] metaparaparametaparaparacyclophane, was synthesized by 2:2 cyclization of 3,5-bis(bromomethyl)nitrobenzene, derived from 3,5-dimethylnitrobenzene, and bisphenol A. The cyclophane was found to form 1:1 complex with benzene.
