No matter what the surroundings, be it solution, a self-assembled monolayer on gold, or a solid-state polymer matrix, the same molecular electromechanical switching mechanism is obeyed for bistable rotaxanes (see illustration) and bistable catenanes in appropriate settings. However, the kinetics and thermodynamic parameters change quite dramatically from one environment to another.
