A few examples of molecules containing a redox active core surrounded by an organic sheath have been synthesized recently. The redox nucleus may be attached covalently to the structure's core or held there by noncovalent forces. This review article surveys the electrochemical behavior of such redox centers, emphasizing the thermodynamic and kinetic effects brought about by encapsulation.
