A practical five-step route is described to 1,6-bis(l,-amino-3'-carbethoxy-4'-methyl-7'-naphthyl)hexane (6) in 23% yield from 1,6-diphenylhexane. From 6 are prepared two 3,7-bridged naphthalene-derived cyclophanes, 1,8-[3,7][l-(dimethylamino)-4-methylnaphtha]-3,6-dithiacyclotetradecaphane (15) and 1,11-[3,7][l-(dimethylamino)-4-methylnaphtha]-2,10-diketo-3,9-di-iV-methylazacycloheptadecaphane1 (13).
