A 1:1 complex of [diquat]2+ and a tailor‐made derivative of dibenzo[30]crown‐10 has been investigated in solution as well as in the solid phase. The crown ether is rigidified by an o‐(CH2O)2C6H4 bridge joining the two annelated benzene rings. Complicated exchange reactions in solution were studied NMR spectroscopically. X‐ray structure analyses have been carried out on the host molecule and the complex.
