    Abstract

    1-Octyl-3-methylimidazolium (C8-mim) cation forms multi-component bi-layers with p-sulfonatocalix[4]arene and phosphonium ions, and aquated lanthanide ions, with the imidazolium head group residing in the calixarene cavity and the terminus of the C8 chain penetrating the adjacent hydrophobic bi-layer which is comprised of calixarenes and phosphonium ions, as part of a porous-like extended structure. Hirshfeld surface analyses reveal the nature of the interactions between the components.
