This thesis describes studies on ruthenium(II) and osmium(II) [22]paracyclophane compounds. Chapter 1 introduces the work, giving a historical background to the development of [22]paracyclophane chemistry. The properties of this compound and the syntheses of derived metal complexes are reviewed. Chapter 2 describes the synthesis of [Os(η6-C16H16)Cl2]2. Chapter 3 reports reactions of [Ru(η6-C16H16)C12]2 which lead to the formation of binuclear triply-bridged compounds of the type [(η6-C16H16)Ru(OMe)3Ru(η6-C16H16)][X] (Y=OMe-, OEt-, OH-, Cl-). Chapter 4 presents studies on the compounds [M(η6-arene)(η6-C16H16)][X]2. Chapter 5 presents the syntheses of organometallic chain compounds containing [22]paracyclophane. Chapter 6 draws together structural and spectroscopic data on the coordinated [22]paracyclophane ligand.
