A conjugated thiophene-based rotaxane: synthesis, spectroscopy, and modeling.
A dithiophene rotaxane 1 subsetbeta-CD and its shape-persistent corresponding dumbbell 1 were synthesized and fully characterized. 2D NOESY experiments, supported by molecular dynamics calculations, revealed a very mobile macrocycle (beta-CD). Steady-state and time-resolved photoluminescence experiments in solution were employed to elucidate the excited-state dynamics for both systems and to explore the effect of cyclodextrin encapsulation. The photoluminescence (PL) spectrum of 1 subsetbeta-...Expand abstract
