Dendritic cyclophane tetramer and octamer were prepared by aminolysis of succinimidyl ester derivative of tetraaza [] paracyclophane with the corresponding poly(amidoamine) dendrimers as a scaffold, followed by removal of the protecting groups. The present cyclophane tetramer and octamer showed enhanced guest-binding affinities toward fluorescent guests such as 6-p-toluidinonaphthalene-2-sulfonate and 6-anilinonaphthalene-2-sulfonate, in comparison with those of monocyclic cyclophane, reflecting multivalency effects in macrocycles.
