The syntheses and properties of various cyclophanes have been extensively investigated by Cram and others. The paracyclophanes are compounds in which benzene rings are linked to each other by two saturated chains at the para positions, as in structure I. When they are joined to the meta positions, they are called metacyclophanes.
