Abstract

Self-assembled molecular capsules are formed on crystallisation of calix[5]arenesulfonic acid resulting from treating calix[5]arene with sulfuric acid; the calix[5]arenesulfonic acid molecules dimerise via hydrogen bonding through the sulfonic acid groups, shrouding two hydrogen-bonded sulfuric acid molecules as the supermolecule [(H2SO4)2]subset of {(calix[5]arenesulfonic acid)2].
