  • Figure 1

    The chemical structure and calculated potential profile of traditional pillar[6]arene and the newly designed leaning pillar[6]arene [4] (color online).

  • Figure 2

    Tilted version of a pillar[6]arene was synthesized by selective removal of hydroxyl/alkoxy functionalities from the backbone of the macrocycle. Such modification is resulted in 25° lean because of the non-perpendicular dihedral angle of the individual phenylene rings, in contrast to the 0° lean of conventional pillar[6]arenes (color online).
