Abstract

Shuttling fast and loose: Weak interaction, switchable, rotaxane-based molecular shuttles, in which the positional fidelity of the macrocycle is conferred by a single hydrogen bond in each state, are constructed through the high-yielding and selective active template heterocoupling of different functionalized alkynes using the Cadiot–Chodkiewicz reaction.
