[60]Fullerene (C60)-calix[n]arene interactions were studied in toluene : MeCN = 10 : 1 (v/v) using an electrochemical method. In the presence of homooxacalix[3]arenes and calix[5]arenes, both Epe and Epa shifted to the negative potential, whereas they were scarcely affected by the addition of calix[4]arenes. The K2 values electrochemically determined for the association with C60. are generally smaller than the K1 values spectroscopically determined for the association with C60. The tendency indicates that the charge-transfer-type interaction is one of the driving forces for C60 inclusion.
