Rotaxanes are compounds in which a ring is threaded by a chain having bulky terminal cap groups. In this article, we review the design, synthesis and characterization of rotaxanes and polyrotaxanes of cyclodextrins threaded by an alkyl chain or a poly(ethylene glycol) as well as the synthesis of a light-driven molecular shuttle based on a cyclodextrin-rotaxane.
