The outstanding affinity of receptor 1H66+ towards ReO4–, in an acidic water solution, opens new perspectives for the development of selective materials for the extraction and recovery of the perrhenate anion for clinical and environmental purposes. The formation of an inclusion complex, [1H6(ReO4)](CF3SO3)5, is confirmed by X-ray diffraction studies.
