European Journal of Organic Chemistry: Special Issue dedicated to 50 Years of Rotaxanes

50 years ago, Gottfried Schill and Hubertus Zollenkopf reported the synthesis of a macrocyclic ring threaded onto a linear aromatic moiety capped by bulky end groups, which they named for the first time as rotaxanes. This special issue guest-edited by Jean-Pierre Sauvage honors this important milestone in supramolecular chemistry, which was published in Liebigs Annalen, one of the key founding journals of EurJOC. With contributions from Jean‐François Nierengarten, Nicholas H. Evans, Maurizio Prato, Shinichi Saito, Nicolas Giuseppone and many more.
