A calixarene scaffold has been functionalized with an electron-accepting perylene bisimide as well as an electron-donating pyrene unit. Steady-state and time-resolved spectroscopy indicate a strong charge-transfer (CT) interaction between these two units in all investigated solvents. The signatures of the radical anion of the perylene bisimide and the radical cation of the pyrene are observed with femtosecond transient absorption spectroscopy. A preferential pi-stacked conformation is inferred, Ill tetrahydrofuran as a solvent similar to 25% of all extended form is invoked. The CT states of these two ground-state populations (pi-stacked and extended) have different formation and decay kinetics and result in the spectral distinction of a compact and, all extended charge-transfer state upon visible excitation. In the extended conformation, upon UV excitation, pyrene acts its all electron acceptor that is reduced through a photoinduced electron-transfer process by the calixarene. In this conformation the calixarene scaffold is accordingly not all uninvolved link,er unit but participates effectively ill the electron-transfer processes.
