Complexes of lanthanide(III) ions with p-tert-butyltetrathiacalixarene show forms that depend both on the particular lanthanide ion and a variety of subtle factors, probably including kinetic effects. Typically, the structures involve a sandwich-like array of calixarene units incorporating three or four metal ions, although EuIII, in particular, shows a remarkable variety in its complexes.
