New structural motifs incorporating trivalent lanthanoid ions and p-sulfonatocalixarene, derived from solutions with or without potential host molecules for the calixarene, notably 18-crown-6, 1-aza-18-crown-6, and cryptand[2.2.2], have been authenticated. These include coordination polymers which form bi-layer sheet structures and an unprecedented combined `ferris wheel' and `molecular capsule' structure for Ce(3+) which incorporates two previously reported structural motifs associated with this type of chemistry, respectively for elements to the left and right of cerium in the lanthanide series.
