Claisen–Schmidt condensations, yielding only water as a by-product, performed on building blocks serving as shape-selective male or female terminals and unions, enable the preparation of diverse molecular structures including novel linear rods and semi-elliptical, rectangular or trapezoidal macrocycles. Isoaromatization affords a corresponding range of phenol-formaldehyde derivatives, in atom economical reactions.
