Abstract

The crystal structures of two halophenoxytriazine host–guest compounds are reported and discussed. They feature inclusion of C60 into cages of 2,4,6-tris(4-iodophenoxy)-1,3,5-triazine [IPOT, hexagonal, P63/m, a = 16.367(2) Å, c = 20.661(4) Å, V = 4793.1(13) Å3, Z = 2] and of pyridine6-clusters into cages of 2,4,6-tris(4-bromophenoxy)-1,3,5-triazine (BrPOT, rhombohedral, R\( \bar{3} \), a = 15.5186(8) Å, c = 39.521(3) Å, V = 8242.7(8) Å3, Z = 6). The stackings of the threefold symmetric layers of XPOT host molecules are different from each other and from those of all previously reported XPOT inclusion compounds (X: Cl, Br, I).

Graphical Abstract

The new compounds IPOT3·C60 and BrPOT2·py3, represent new packing types in the family of threefold symmetric XPOT inclusion compounds (XPOT = 2,4,6-tris(4-halophenoxy)-1,3,5-triazine; X = Cl, Br, I)
