Half-rotation in a kinetically locked [2]catenane induced by transition metal ion substitution

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report on a heterocircuit [2]catenane in which a reversible half-rotation of one ring about the other can be induced, and locked in place, by switching the coordination of the interlocked rings between Pd(II) and Co(III).
