  • simple cyclophanes, hydrocarbons - benzene ring combined with aliphatic chain, bridging two nonadjacent carbons;
  • cyclophanes with one aromatic system - and aliphatic chains;
  • metacyclophanes, aliphatic chain - bridging 1, 3 positions on benzene rings;
  • benzene ring nonplanarity - effects on chemical and physical properties of compounds;
