Abstract

The conformational properties and self-assembly behaviour of the p-carboxylatocalix[4]arenes, when in the presence of a pyridine template, are well understood. Salt formation with these molecules, a process driven by the introduction of an amino group to the 2-position of the pyridine template, has dramatic consequences on both building block conformation and the resulting self-assembly.
