[structure: see text]. The crown ether BPX26C6 forms a [3]pseudorotaxane-like complex with the N,N'-dimethyl-4,4'-bipyridinium dication both in solution and in the solid state. The facile one-pot synthesis of a [2]rotaxane from neutral precursors-BPX26C6, 4,4'-dipyridyl, and 3,5-di-tert-butylbenzyl bromide-suggests that BPX26C6 may bind to (mono)pyridinium cations in a [2]pseudorotaxane-like manner.
