Review: The synthesis of molecular cages, belts and strips opens up new areas of technology for exploitation. Solvent specific sensors are one possible use of cage molecules called carcerands (see figure). A series of Diels‐Alder reactions under tight stereochemical control are used in a remarkably efficient manner to produce the structures. (Figure Presented.)
