Abstract

A strategy for the construction of a [2]rotaxane - comprised of a dumbbell-shaped component containing two π-electron-deficient 4,4′-bipyridinium units encircled by one π-electron-rich bisparaphenylene-34-crown-10 macrocycle - by a constitutionally determined self-assembly process is described.
