(matrix presented) The template-directed synthesis of a [2]rotaxane, in which a π-electron deficient ring component - cyclobis(paraquat-p-phenylene) - is assembled around a π-electron rich asymmetric monopyrrolotetrathiafulvalene unit on the rod section of an amphiphilic dumbbell component that is terminated by a hydrophilic dendritic stopper at one end and a hydrophobic tetraarylmethane stopper at the other end, is reported.
