Abstract

A series of new sodium and mixed sodium/manganese clusters have been formed using p-tert-butylcalix[8] arene as a support. In all cases the calixarene adopts the pleated-loop conformation, and the resulting complexes show interesting self-assembly properties depending on the ligated solvent molecules around individual cluster cores.
