Abstract

Tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) is trapped inside a dimeric capsule formed by two octaacid, deep-cavity cavitands in aqueous solution. While the first one-electron oxidation of TTF is strongly hindered by encapsulation, the capsular assembly is eventually destabilized upon oxidation of the guest.
