Abstract

A pyrazolyl urea ligand adopts two possible conformations with the urea NH groups directed either outward or inward. Metal coordination enforces the outward conformation resulting in either anion complexation or self-association and hence extended supramolecular assemblies including a hexameric barrel that persists in solution.
