Synthesis of new flexible molecular tweezers 1·M2 (M = 2H, Co, Zn, Cu, Ni) based on bis-dioxa[2.2]orthocyclophane bearing two porphyrins is presented. The molecular tweezers (1·(2H)2) can bind not only planar π-electron acceptors, such as tetracyanoquinodimethane (TCNQ) and tetracyanobenzene (TCNB) but also a spherical guest C60.
