Topologically constrained host cavity for sensing chloride ions: Chloride anion templated synthesis of an electrochemical, anion sensory, interlocked host system, prepared by the integration of redox-active 1,2,3,4,5-pentaphenylferrocene stopper groups into the structure of a rotaxane (see picture), is described. A characteristic electrochemical response for chloride binding by the rotaxane is observed, attributed to the topologically constrained cavity of the interlocked molecule.
