 This paper details size-specific CPP synthesis via introduction of rigid angled parts (cyclohexane rings).  The compounds were assembled using efficient palladium- catalysed C–B/C–Br cross-coupling (Suzuki–Miyaura coupling) and/or nickel-mediated C–Br/C–Br coupling reactions, and the final removal of the rigid angled parts was achieved by thermolysis in the presence of sodium bisulfate.
