Synthesis, inclusion properties, and ability to control excited-state properties of two water-soluble hosts are presented. These hosts surround the guest molecule(s) by forming a capsular assembly. By constraining the guest and by providing very little free space, the host is able to alter the excitedstate behavior of guest molecules. The excited-state chemistry and physics of guest molecules are distinctly different from those in organic solvents.
