  • The first cycloparaphenylene (CPP)-based ionic donor–acceptor supramolecule Li+@C60⊂[10]CPP⋅X− has been synthesized. X-ray crystallography not only confirmed the molecular structure of Li+@C60⊂[10]CPP⋅X− but also uncovered the formation of a unique ionic crystal. The strong charge-transfer interaction between [10]CPP and Li+@C60, which was confirmed by electrochemical measurement and spectroscopic analyses, caused significant delocalization of the positive charge across the entire complex.
