Abstract

A switchable donor–acceptor bistable [3]catenane, composed of a crown ether containing a pair of alternating π-electron rich tetrathiafulvalene and 1,5-dioxynaphthalene units, encircled by two π-electron deficient cyclobis(paraquat-p-phenylene) rings, has been synthesised and the redox-activated switching it undergoes investigated. 2012
