Crystallisation of a tris-p-carboxylatocalix[4]arene from various pyridine derivatives leads, in some cases, to further self-assembly into triply helical nanotubes, demonstrating the degree of tolerance of the structure motif towards the introduction of alkyl groups around the aromatic ring of the guest template. © The Royal Society of Chemistry and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique 2011.
