Polyrotaxane-like structures consisting of macrocycles trapped to form a polymeric network (see Figure) have been synthesized using a pre-assembling principle. The synthesis and electrochemical characterization of thin films are described. In addition to the classical properties of organic conducting polymers, the assemblies exhibit very specific properties arising from the coordinating macrocycles sliding between the nodes of the network.
