The purpose of this study was the preparation by a novel approach of benzo-(2.2)-paracyclophane. Also synthesized were the syn-and anti-isomers of 2,15-dithia (3.3)- napthalenophane. The results of these syntheses are supported by spectral studies. In preparation for future study of the ruthenium complexes of these cyclophanes, hexamethylbenzeruthenium dichloride was also synthesized.
