Reaction of diacyl chloride (1) with diaminodibenzo-18-crown-6 (2) under high dilution conditions gave macrocyclic diamide (3) in good yield. 3 was reduced in toluene with SMEAH [sodium bis (2-methoxyethoxy) aluminum hydride] to afford the target macrocyclic compounds 4. The week π-electronic donor-acceptor interaction between 4 and  fullerene was found.
