The intermolecular template-directed synthesis, separation and characterisation of two constitutional isomers that are self-complexing donor-acceptor [1] rotaxanes has been achieved by click chemistry, starting from a pi-electron deficient tetracationic cyclophane containing two azide functions and a pi-electron rich 1,5-dioxynaphthalene-containing polyether chain terminated by propargyl groups.
