The synthesis, structure, and properties of methylene-bridged [6]cycloparaphenylene ([6]CPP), a non-alternant aromatic belt, are described. This belt-shaped methylene-bridged [6]CPP, in which each phenylene unit is tethered to its neighbors by methylene bridges, was constructed through six-fold intramolecular nickel-mediated aryl-aryl coupling of triflate-functionalized pillar[6]arene in 18% isolated yield. Compared with the analogous [6]CPP, the methylene bridges co-planarize neighboring paraphenylene units and enhance the degree of pi-conjugation, resulting in a significant decrease in energy gap. Moreover, the incorporation of small molecules in the defined pocket of methylene-bridged [6]CPP makes it an attractive supramolecular architecture. Methylene-bridged [6]CPP is characterized by high internal strain energy reaching 110.2 kcal·mol–1, attributed to its restricted structure. This work not only exhibits an efficient strategy to construct a new family of aromatic belt, but also showcases their properties, which combine the merits of CPPs and pillararenes.
