This thesis contains 7 chapters detailing the background, uses and syntheses of novel [2.2]paracyclophane compounds. Where applicable, their use in asymmetric synthesis is described. Within chapter 1, a brief description of the history of [2.2]paracyclophane and the development of its chemistry is given, this includes its basic reactivity and that of its derivatives. A short introduction of its use in asymmetric synthesis is also included. Finally, a very brief review of novel applications of the [2.2]paracyclophane motif in polymer and medicinal chemistry is given. Chapter 2 outlines the synthesis of (S)-4-butylsulfinyl[2.2]paracyclophane and the subsequent extensive optimisation of directed metalation conditions. A summary of the analytical data and syntheses of 11 novel 4,5-disubstituted [2.2]paracyclophane compounds is presented.
