A bistable CB6-based [3]rotaxane with two recognition sites has been prepared very efficiently in a high yield synthesis through CB6 catalyzed 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition; this rotaxane behaves as a reversible molecular switch and exhibits conformational changes caused by the movement of rings under base, acid and heat stimuli from one location to the other.
