The structure of the title assembly, tricarbonylchloro-[16-nitro-3,6,9,12,20,23,26,29-octaoxa-34,37-diazatetra- cyclo[,18.1 31,35]dotetraconta-1(39),14,16,18(41),-31, 33, 35(42), 36(40), 37-nonaene-2, 13, 19, 30-tetrone]-rhenium(I), [ReCl(C32H33N3O14)(CO)3], has been determined via a single-crystal diffraction study. The rhenium ion is octahedrally coordinated. The bidentate bipyridine/crown ether/nitrobenzene assembly is folded such that the pyridyl rings and nitrobenzene moiety are almost coplanar.
