The perfect host: Spectroscopic and computational techniques were used to investigate the absorption, luminescence and induced circular dichroism (ICD) spectra of a multicomponent rotaxane. DFT calculations revealed the availability of low-energy conformations that contribute to the observed signal (see figure). The results were compared with those predicted on the basis of established ICD rules for cyclodextrin host–guest complexes.
