The study of host-guest chemistry is an important new area of scientific investigation. Host molecules were designed using a rigid biphenol framework, convergent binding groups and rigid spacers capable of $\pi$-stacking. The syntheses of several of such host molecules, such as 47 and 50 containing alkyne spacers and 89 and 90 containing an aryl spacer, were completed. The synthetic pathways that lead to the formation of these macrocycles will be discussed.Dept. of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
