A neutral donor-acceptor [2]rotaxane, which has been synthesized using click chemistry, has had its solid-state structure and superstructure elucidated by X-ray crystallography. Both dynamic 1H NMR spectroscopy and electrochemical investigations have been employed in an attempt to shed light on both geometrical reorganization and redox-switching processes that are occurring or can be induced within the [2]rotaxane.
