Abstract

4,13-Diaza-18-crown-6 in the presence of aquated trivalent lanthanide ions and p-sulfonatocalix[4]arene results in a,molecular capsule' type arrangement with two 4- charge calixarenes and two water molecules shrouding the diprotonated crown ether with overall charged balance from two lanthanide ions. Analogous chemistry in the presence of 1-aza-18-crown-6 under the same conditions results in an unusual bi-layer structural motif devoid of the crown ether, the difference in chemistry being in part ascribed to any `molecular capsule' formed for the mono-aza crown ether taking on an overall 7- charge rather than a 6- charge, requiring fractional lanthanide ions for charge balance.
