Olympiadane is a mechanically-interlocked molecule composed of five interlocking macrocyles that resembles the Olympic rings. The molecule is a linear pentacatenane or a catenane. It was synthesized and named by Stoddart and coworkers in 1994. The molecule was designed without any practical use in mind, although other catenanes may have possible application to the construction of a molecular computer.
