Abstract

[n]Cycloparaphenylenes behave as molecular templates of “perfectly chemically defined” single‐wall carbon nanotubes. These [n]CPP molecules have electronic, mechanical, and chemical properties in size correspondence with their giant congeners. Under mechanical stress, they form charge‐transfer salts, or complexes with fullerene, by one‐electron concave–convex electron transfer.
