A number of elementary functions performed by molecular-level machines are illustrated, and more complex ones are foreseen. Expand
Acid−Base Controllable Molecular Shuttles†
Two novel rotaxanes, comprised of a dibenzocrown-8 (DB24C8) macroring bound mechanically to a chemical “dumbbell” possessing two different recognition sitesviz., secondary dialkylammonium… Expand
Molecular meccano. 1. Rotaxanes and a catenane made to order
Bimolecular electron transfer reactions of the excited states of transition metal complexes
Amphiphilic Bistable Rotaxanes
Two molecular shuttles/ switches-a slow one and a fast one- in the shape of amphiphilic, bistable rotaxanes have been synthesized and characterized. Both rotaxanes contain a hydrophobic,… Expand
Simple Mechanical Molecular and Supramolecular Machines: Photochemical and Electrochemical Control of Switching Processes
Photochemical control of a self-assembled supramolecular 1:1 pseudorotaxane (formed between a tetracationic cyclophane, namely the tetrachloride salt of cyclobis(paraquat-p-phenylene), and… Expand

A self-assembling supramolecular system which mimics, at a molecular level, the function performed by a macroscopic electrical extension cable is designed, synthesized, and investigated. Expand
FUELS FROM SOLAR ENERGY. A DREAM OF GIACOMO CIAMICIAN, THE FATHER OF PHOTOCHEMISTRY
Giacomo Ciamician was professor of Chemistry at the University of Bologna from 1889 to 1922. Inspired by the ability of plants to make use of solar energy, he was the first scientist to investigate… Expand
Redox-controllable amphiphilic rotaxanes.
With the fabrication of molecular electronic devices (MEDs) and the construction of nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMSs) as incentives, two constitutionally isomeric, redox-controllable rotaxanes… Expand
