The pendant-arm macrocycle, meso-5,5,7,12,12,14-hexamethyl-1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecane-1,8-di-(1-methylnaphthalene) has been synthesized and its single crystal structure determined. The molecule crystallizes in a primitive monoclinic cell, with the space group P21/a (#14). The cell dimensions are a = 10.778(3)Å, b = 13.809(3) Å, c = 11.420(2) Å, = 102.49(2)°, volume = 1659.5(6) Å3.
Keywords: Pendant-arm macrocycle; crystal structure; 1-methylnaphthalene Pendant-arm macrocycle; crystal structure; 1-methylnaphthalene
