Rapid thermally assisted donor–acceptor catenation

Author affiliations


Charged donor–acceptor [2]catenanes containing cyclobis(paraquat-p-phenylene) as the ring component can be synthesised in yields of up to 88% in under one hour by heating two precursors in the presence of macrocyclic polyether templates in N,N-dimethylformamide at 80 °C.
