Develop viable, high yielding synthetic routes to functional catenanes and rotaxanes

A series of rotaxanes has been synthesized which contain different imide and bisimide units.

Other rotaxanes have been synthesized which contain a new type of station, which made it possible to have better control of the relative energies involved in shuttling processes.

New rotaxanes have been synthesized which contain chromophores absorbing in the visible spectral range, and which have a strong fluorescence with a large sensitivity for the medium in which the molecule is contained.
