Two deep cavity cavitands, octa acid and resorcinol-capped octa acid, have been established to be good triplet energy donors in the excited state and electron donors in the ground state to excited acceptors. This property endows them the capacity to be "active" reaction containers. The above recognition provides opportunities to investigate the excited state chemistry of host-encapsulated guests without the use of secondary triplet energy and electron donors.
