Abstract

Stability of copper-seamed C-alkylpyrogallol[4]arene hexamers with varying chail lenghts in solution has been studied using small-angle neutron scattering (SANS). The progression in diameter of spherical capsules with increasing alkyl chain lengths of copper-seamed hexamers in solution suggests both robustness as well as a close correlation between the solid phase and solution phase structures.
