(Chemical Equation Presented) All clicking into place: Self-complementarity between a bis (crown ether) derivative and a bisammonium fullerene leads to the formation of a stable noncovalent macrocyclic 1:1 complex (see schematic representation). The binding constant for this complex is three orders of magnitude larger than that for other closely related systems as a result of the two-center host-guest topography.
