The synthesis of a pseudo-rotaxane containing two metal centres has been achieved using the coordination of a ditopic organic ligand on an iridium(III) complex followed by the coordination of a copper(I) centre. Preliminary photophysical studies indicate that the excited state of the iridium is quenched by the copper unit.
