46_03b/2007Inside Cover: Oligothiophene-Based Catenanes: Synthesis and Electronic Properties of a Novel Conjugated Topological Structure (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 3/2007)

A “π-conjugated catenane” or more accurately a catenane formed from two intertwined conjugated macrocycles has been formed for the first time by a double metal template strategy. Interestingly, a through-space electronic interaction between the donor unit (oligothiophene, metallic color) and the acceptor component of the other ring (phenanthroline, blue) is evident. Further details can be found in the Communication by P. Bäuerle et al. on page 363ff.
