Fuel

A molecular shuttle consisting of a dibenzo-24-crown-8 macrocycle and an axle with two degenerate peripheral triazolium stations, a central dibenzyl ammonium station, and two anthracenes stoppers was exposed to 2-cyano-2-phenylpropanoic acid as a chemical fuel. Protonation/deprotonation of the amine reversibly switches the rotaxane from a static and little emissive to a dynamic fluorescent shuttling device, the latter exhibiting rapid motion (15 kHz at 25 °C). Four fuel cycles were run.
