Title

The quest for chain-link hydrogen-bonded capsules: Self-assembly of C-methyl calix[4]resorcinarene with 5,5′-bipyrimidine

Abstract

The self-assembly of the tetradentate ligand 5,5′-bipyrimidine with C-methyl calix[4]resorcinarene is reported. The structures of three different three-dimensional hydrogen-bonded networks formed on self-assembly are presented. Two structures contain ligand-bridged resorcinarenes with a "chain-link" capsule motif. The third structure has the resorcinarenes diagonally cross-linked by the bipyrimidine ligand without forming distinct bridged capsules.
