    The forces required for the detachment of ferrocene (Fc) from β-cyclodextrin (βCD) in a single host (βCD)-guest (Fc) complex were investigated using force spectroscopy under electrochemical conditions. The redox state of the guest Fc moiety as well as the structure of the supporting matrix was found to decisively affect the nanomechanical properties of the complex.
