A Zn phthalocyanine-resorcinarene cavitand hybrid was prepared. The axial binding and host-guest interactions of this hybrid with a pyridinyl-pyrene were investigated by UV-vis and fluorescence spectroscopic means, revealing the encapsulation of the guest maintained by axial coordination to the Zn phthalocyanine. Energy transfer between the pyrene and the phthalocyanine was evidenced.
