Abstract

A higly symmetric cation consisting of two phosphonium ions and a crown ether molecule is obtained in crystalline 1. In 1 the direction PMe…Me′P′ coincides with the symmetry axis; the 18C6 host is oriented at right angles to this. All methyl H atoms are bound by discrete H bridges at individual O atoms. These H bridges are in each case directed towards the “rear side” of the crown ether ring. (Formula Presented.)
