Hexacyclen is a nitrogen analog of 18-crown-6 (sc-254005), which functions as a good electron donor due to the secondary amines of the molecule, which donate electrons to transition metal cations. Hexacyclen can be used to synthesize ultrathin separation membranes via alternating electrostatic adsorption of Hexacyclen and polyvinylsulfate on porous polyacrylonitrile/polyethylene terephthalate (PAN/PET) substrates. These membranes are very permeable in electrolyte solutions. Chemical studies indicate that Hexacyclen functions as a block copolymer, which is used to synthesize Au(111) nanoplatelets.
