Abstract

A switchable donor-acceptor pretzelane composed of a crown ether containing tetrathiafulvalene and 1,5-dihydroxynaphthalene recognition units and a covalently tethered cyclobis(paraquat-p-phenylene) ring exhibits unidirectional motion on both oxidation (forwards) and reduction (backwards).
