Abstract

Upon crystallising a series of pyrogallol[4]arenes from ethyl acetate as hydrogen bonded nanocapsules, structural study allows for the determination of the dependence of inter-capsule spacing on the chain length present at the lower rims of these 'bowl-shaped' molecules. Surprisingly, these nanocapsules pack closest together when a hexyl chain length is employed, and reasons for this phenomenon are suggested.
