Abstract

The self-assembly of a π-electron deficient bipyridinium-based cyclophane around a π-electron rich ferrocene-based polyether as template provides a relatively simple method of self-assembling, in preparative yields, an organic molecular square - namely, cyclobis(paraquat-4,4′-biphenylene) - that is able to recognise and bind π-electron rich guests.
