Getting connected: The formation of pseudorotaxane assemblies between a designed macrocyclic halogen bonding (XB) acceptor (red in scheme) and a series of XB donor threading components was templated by a single halogen bond. The strength of the XB assembly between the pyridine macrocycle and iodopyridinium thread was utilized in the ring-closing metathesis clipping synthesis of a catenane.
