Spin doctor: The polymacrocyclic oligoarylamine in the picture serves as a multispin source owing to its multi-electron redox activity. As a result of its pseudobeltane structure and para-phenylenediamine bridges, the radical cation can convert between two sideslipped structures with a windshield-wiper-like motion. In contrast, the tetraazacyclophane units are rigid components in the polymacrocycle.
