The foundation of a light driven molecular muscle based on stilbene and α-cyclodextrin

Dawson, Ryan; Lincoln, Stephen F; Easton, Christopher


The rotaxane 3(E,E) serves as the basis of a light driven molecular muscle, where reversible photoisomerisation of the stilbene units causes the cyclodextrins to move off and on the stilbene units, contracting and extending the distance between the blocking groups.
