Parital de-solvation of the toluene solvate of p-tert-butylcalix[5]arene affords a frustrated organic solid that is a new type of sorbant. Increased control over this sorption is achieved by employing a high boiling solvent for incremental de-solvation, revealing the calixarene: Solvent ratio for maximum gas sorption. © 2009 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
