An ab initio study of the influence of crystal packing on the host guest interactions of calixarene crystal structures
MetadataShow full item record
We report the first quantum mechanical calculations of p-tert-butylcalixarene inclusion complexes in the crystalline state with geometrical aspects demonstrating good agreement with experiment, while comparison of the configurations calculated for an isolated complex and in the crystal, illustrate that crystal packing forces contribute to the observed structure of the host guest assembly.
