The first structural authentication of p-sulfonatocalix[8]arene shows the large host to adopt a 'pleated loop' conformation in the solid state. Each resulting 'groove' in the macrocycle is occupied by a 4,4′-dipyridine-N, N′-dioxide molecule in an extended multicomponent lanthanide(III) 3D coordination polymer.
