The macrocyclic amphiphile 1 and 2 through electrostatic interactions were synthesized from their cationic and anionic components in a flask and on a water subphase. The macrocyclic amphiphiles formed stable floating monolayers on a water subphase, where the limiting areas were decisively determined by the cross-sectional areas of the tetracationic cyclophane moieties, leading to the enhancement of photoisomerizability of azobenzene units in monolayers.
