A highly-strained, nitrogen-doped cycloparaphenylene (CPP), aza[6]CPP, was synthesized and then converted to a donor-acceptor nanohoop, N-methylaza[6]CPP, via alkylation of the nitrogen center. The energy levels of the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) and the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) for both molecules were then probed by cyclic(More)
Because of their unique cyclic architectures, tunable electronic properties, and supramolecular chemistries, cycloparaphenylenes (CPPs) have the potential to act as a new class of ligands for coordination cages, metal-organic frameworks, and small-molecule transition-metal complexes. However, currently there is no general strategy to coordinate the cyclic(More)
