We are investigating programmable and hierarchical molecular architectures toward generation of chemical and physical properties derived from intermolecular communications. Electronic communication between molecules is sensitive to their relative orientation. Mechanically interlocked supramolecular motives, such as catenanes and rotaxanes, are promising molecular systems to array functionalized building blocks to regulate their precise intermolecular communications, because two or more molecular components are inseparable but their interactions are flexibly convertible in these supramolecular systems. Recently, we have reported a mechanically linked cofacially stacked arrays of a metalloporphyrin and metallophthalocyanine units by formation of a four-fold rotaxane and its switchable spin-spin communication induced by external stimuli.
