Polymorphism in pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylic acid: Competition between “robust” synthons
A new polymorph of anhydrous pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylic (dipicolinic) acid in which salt formation is favoured over carboxylic acid dimerisation is reported, together with the solid-stateExpand

Solid-state assemblies from pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylates: “changing the instruction set through hydration”
A novel dihydrate structure of pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylic (dipicolinic) acid is reported, found to demonstrate a different solid-state architecture to that of the previously published monohydrateExpand

Comparative study of azobenzene and stilbene bridged crown ether p - tert -butylcalix[4]arene
Abstract Photo-switchable calixarenes consisting of a stilbene or azobenzene bridge, spanning the narrow rim as a switching unit, were synthesized through reductive coupling of o-, m- andExpand

Structural investigation of x,y-bis-(chlorocarbonyl) pyridines derivatives: “strength in diversity”—a disparity of supramolecular packing motifs
Solid-state structural studies of three isomeric bis-(chlorocarbonyl) pyridines (the 2,6; 2,5 and 3,5 regiosiomers), indicate that the tape-assembly observed previously in the corresponding 2,6-,Expand

Supramolecular Assembly: Recorded in ‘tape-form’
Supramolecular assemblies, as distinct from ‘co-ordination polymers’ generally owe their occurrence to intermolecular interactions at the medium (e.g. hydrogen-bonding) to weak (e.g. Van der Waal’s)Expand
