A supramolecular species has been designed for studying the mechanism of long-range electron transfer through non-covalent bonding. A rhenium complex with a cyclodextrin unit on the side arm of a ligand has been synthesized. The rhenium complex trapped N,N-diethylanilline into its cavity, and the luminescence from the host complex was quenched by the guest.
