Molecular recognitions, the keystone of supramolecular chemistry , depends on a variety of noncovalent interaction. Among them an arene-arene interaction play a fundamental role in the selective complexation of π-neutral guests. The interaction between simple arenes compromise π-acid/base (charge-transfer), van der Walls (dispersive), and polar electrostatic (coulombic) components . The understanding of electron transfer processes is essential for future progress in many diverse fields of science, spinning from biological enzymes  via organic synthesis  to optoelectronic devices .
In this communication we would like to present the synthesis and complexation study of O-benzylated diazacoronands of type 1.
The above-mentioned electron-rich macrocyclic donor compounds with electron-poor acceptor like nitro- and cyanoarenes, forming 1:1 charge-transfer complexes. Their formation was confirmed by NMR and UV-vis spectroscopy as well as X-ray analysis.
