Irradiation of the macrocycles (4a-b) having two 1,5-dibenzoyl-2,4-dialkoxybenzene moieties with 350 nm mercury lamp followed by dehydration afforded two benzo[1,2-b:5,4-b’]difuran ring-containing cyclophanes (1a-b) via quadruple photocyclization reaction forming four dihydrofuranol ring systems in one pot.
