Olympiadane is a mechanically-interlocked molecule composed of five interlocking macrocyles that resembles the Olympic rings. The molecule is a linear pentacatenane or a [5]catenane. It was synthesized and named by Stoddart and coworkers in 1994. The molecule was designed without any practical use in mind,[1] although other catenanes may have possible application to the construction of a molecular computer.
