(Figure Presented) Twin-axial pseudorotaxanes, in which two multicharged axles simultaneously thread through the γ-CD cavity, were formed for the first time in solution. The twin-axial pseudorotaxane was converted exclusively to a CB -stoppered pseudorotaxane by the addition of CB but regenerated from the pseudorotaxane by the addition of spermine, implementing an unprecedented switching of single/twin-axial rotaxanation.
