Calix[6]arenes bearing N,N-dialkylaniline units or m-phenylenediamine units were synthesized to capture C60 in organic solution: the association constants (7.9-1.1 × 102 dm3mol-1) were the largest values obtained so far, indicating that calix[6]arene acts as an excellent platform to facilitate the cooperative action of the donor groups.
