A novel rotaxane containing a meta-xylenediamide macrocycle is prepared by a new clipping methodology. Upon anion metathesis to the non-coordinating hexafluorophosphate salt, the rotaxane host system was shown to bind chloride and bromide anions more strongly than the basic oxoanions dihydrogen phosphate and acetate in the competitive solvent system 1:1 CDCl(3):CD(3)OD.
