Crystal structures of inclusion complexes of cholic acid with aniline, mono- and difluorinated anilines: Guest information expressed by molecular assembly

The crystal structures of cholic acid (CA), a naturally occurring bile acid, complexed with aniline, and its mono- and difluorinated derivatives were elucidated by X-ray crystallography. Comparison of the structures obtained shows that the molecular assembly pattern and the related structural change of the CA molecule vary among different complexes. These structural changes are the molecular information of the guests.
