    Imidazolium functionalized carboxylic acid forms a multi-component material with p-sulfonatocalix[4]arene and aquated lanthanide ions, stabilising dinuclear metal complexes for Y 3+ and Gd 3+. These have the simplest binding of two bridging carboxylates between the two metal centres (Y 3+), or the same arrangement along with the simplest binding of one carboxylate bridging two metal ions for the larger metal ion (Gd 3+).
