Enhanced chemical reversibility of redox processes incyanine dye rotaxanes

Author affiliations


When a cyanine dye is encapsulated inside the cavity of α-cyclodextrin, by rotaxane formation, its one-electron oxidation and reduction become reversible, due to a thousand-fold increase in the kinetic chemical stability of the oxidised and reduced forms of the chromophore.
