Cyclodextrin-based rotaxanes : an approach to protection of a chromophore

A series of novel [2]rotaxanes of general formula 1 has been synthesised, exploiting the hydrophobic effect to cause binding inside α- or β-cyclodextrin cavities, and making use of Suzuki coupling to stopper the rotaxane. The size complementarity of the dumbbell and cyclodextrin units was investigat...
