The complexation behavior of a series of electron donor-accepter (D-A) covalently linked compounds with cyclodextrins (CyDs) has been reviewed. The structure of these complexes showed rotaxane type conformations, which were investigated by means of 1H NMR spectrometry. The complex formations induced a fixation of a conformation of guest D-A molecules, and D-A distances were enlarged. Thus, accurate photo-induced charge transfer behaviors can be discussed.
