Abstract

We present a new molecular shuttle, consisting of a calixarene core attached to two different photoactive centers, DCM and DMABN. We show that a K+ ion bound to the DCM-grafted crown is translocated towards the other site of the molecule upon photoexcitation, but not released to the bulk.
