Abstract

A novel three dimensional framework, generated by crystallisation of the ternary mixture of Q[8], CsCl and p-hydroxybenzoic acid (Hyb) has the formula {Cs(H2O)[(Hyb)2@Q[8]]2}+2Hyb·Cl·24H2O. The crystal structure shows that the 3D framework is constructed from the four Q[8] molecule units through the Hyb-induced coordination of the caesium pair to the portal oxygens of the Q[8]s.
