Version 1

      Publication Details (including relevant citation   information):

      Cucurbit[6]-, [7]-, and [8]uril can catalyze the   silver(I)-promoted desilylation of   trimethylsilylalkynyl-containing pseudorotaxanes by   stabilizing
      a key π-alkynyl silver intermediate through favorable   interactions between the metallic cation and the cavitand   carbonylated portal.
