- A giant, chiral square-shaped octaimine macrocycle has been obtained in a controlled manner from readily available and inexpensive substrates: 9,10-diphenylanthracene-based dialdehyde and trans-1,2-diaminocyclohexane. Reduction of the polyimine led to a chiral octaamine characterized by a very large internal hydrophobic cavity.
