Scientists in Japan have developed the size-selective syntheses of the four “missing” cycloparaphenylenes (CPP)  ([9], [10], [11] and [13]), which complete the sequence of [6]-[16]CPP. It is important to have access to all of the CPPs in pure form for their future applications and for ring-size effect studies. The synthesis of CPPs was only recently realised (in 2008) and these molecules could find significant utility in supramolecular chemistry and materials science.
