Abstract

In the presence of tetraphenylphosphonium and aquated ytterbium(iii) ions, conformationally flexible p-sulfonato-calix[8]arene forms an extended structure with two dimensional porosity involving the assembly of phosphonium cations and 'molecular capsules' comprised of two calixarenes shrouding three phosphonium cations.
