The discovery thatexo-2,exo-6-dihydroxy-2,6-dimethylbicyclo [3.3.1]nonane (2) forms novel multimolecular canal-type inclusion complexes has led to a systematic study of related molecular structures. This synthetic programme has shown that diol (2) is the prototype of a family of host diols all with the same crystallographic space groupP3121, but with distinctly different canal shapes and dimensions. The structures of the first four members of this new family of hosts are described and contrasted.
